Courtney Freed is a Portland native who spent several years performing in Chicago and Los Angeles. No stranger to the local theatre scene, her most favorite recent roles were Florence in Chess at Lakewood Theater Company and Trina (Drammy nom!) in Live on Stage’s Falsettos. She has also tread the boards of Portland Center Stage, Pixiedust Productions, Broadway Rose, Lakewood, Profile, Triangle Productions and many more! Courtney is the creator of the wildly popular local concert series, Portland Sings!, bringing together some of the city’s finest vocalists for a magical evening in a variety of musical themes.
As a producer and creator, she has helmed countless themed concerts, including “I’ll Stop the World and Belt with you,” a John Hughesical, “The Coco & Ruby Variety Hour” and most recently, a Freddie Mercury tribute show called “Mercury Rising,” which premiered in Portland with Live on Stage in April 2018.
An avid lover of vintage jazz, her first album titled “Happy Little Bluebird” lovingly celebrates the timeless melodies of Harold Arlen. She also sings in clubs and bars around town and is the lead signer for the local gypsy swing band, The Courtney Freed Five.
