Northwest performers, we know how hard you’ve worked over the past couple years to spread the word about The Alliance of Professional Performers NW. 

We want to applaud your efforts to get the word out about the organization and its mission – you’ve told your fellow performers about standing together to get what they need in the workplace; you’ve brought your friends to our #ActorsHappyHour events, you’ve asked producers to add their names to our Preferred Producers list… and your efforts are being noticed!

Over the next month Portland Film Beat will air an interview with Alliance of Professional Performers NW Board Co-chairs Chrisse Roccaro and Yolanda Porter. The interview will be broadcast several times on Comcast TV channels (schedule below) but Portland Film Beat has given us a sneak-preview of the show that you can share with your fellow performers.  You can watch the full interview below, or click here to watch it on YouTube!

One bit of breaking news mentioned in the Portland Film Beat interview is a change to APP-NW’s popular #ActorsHappyHour – In response to your requests and comments, we’ve decided to make AHH! a movable feast!  Starting on September 16, Actors Happy Hour will be held on the 3rd TUESDAY of the month at Cassidy’s Restaurant, at 1331 SW Washington Portland OR.

Owner Bob Cassidy will make his full bar and terrific happy hour menu available to us for the duration of our usual 6 – 9 PM time frame and give us the run of his back dining room for our socializing, raffling and topic-discussing pleasure! Many of us know Cassidy’s as THE place to go after a show, but if you’ve not been, check it out at

Come join us at Cassidy’s on Tuesday, September 16 at 6 PM for the fall kickoff of #ActorsHappyHour – and be sure to tune in on the following dates and times to watch the Portland Film Beat profile of APP-NW:
