Patrick J. Cox

Patrick is the nuts and bolts behind PAE.  He works closely with the production teams to make sure that the director’s vision is acheived, and with outside groups such as the parks to ensure that our travels go smoothly.  You can contact Patrick at operations@portlandactors.com.


Curtis Hanson

Business Director

Curtis has entrusted with the oversight and management of PAE finances since 2010. His skill and care has kept PAE solvent through some pretty tough times over the years.  Curt pays the bills that Michael and Patrick rack up, but not without a little friendly grumbling. Curt is also a bit of a local legend for having portrayed Mr. Perkins (the real estate agent) in the 1985 classic, The Goonies.  In addition to the 50-odd roles he has undertaken over the years, he has appeared in PAE shows since 2002, playing, among others, Malvolio in Twelfth Night, Northumberland in King Henry IV, parts 1 and 2, Gower in Pericles, Caesar in Julius Caesar, Lear in King Lear and most recently, Polonius in Hamlet.To contact Curtis, send a note to business@portlandactors.com
