McDonald Theatre

When entering the McDonald Theatre building, one is immediately flooded with past memories of stage and screen performances because the 1925 building is loaded with historical memories and elements reflecting the days of yore.This (comfortable, familiar yet exciting) feeling is one that the Kesey Family, which owns and operates the theatre, has worked hard to maintain.

Their own childhood memories of past performances at The McDonald Theatre are very vivid. With an extensive background rich in both the arts and business, the Kesey Family combined the love of art with business savvy into a formation that manifests the new face of The McDonald Theatre.

The Cuthbert

Concert venue with a capacity of 5,000, The Cuthbert Amphitheater offers everyone an opportunity to enjoy live music outdoors during spectacular Oregon summers. Located in Eugene,  Oregon at the edge of Alton Baker Park near the University of Oregon's Autzen Stadium.

The Cuthbert features superb sound, beer gardens, food booths and an environment perfect for enjoying superb music performed live by the best touring bands in the country.

News from HEM Board of Directors

HEM has recently reformed the Board of Directors and Executive Council in May 2014.

Stepping down from her President of the BOD was Kim Neumann, but she slid into a newly created Executive post, Operations Manager! Congrats Kim!! This effectively created a role/title that was more suited to her involvement in the day to day operations of HEM.

HEM was very happy to announce the addition of the Executive position, Programs Manager, filled by Brad Peterson. Brad has been successfully contributing to HEM as a Shift Supervisor, and has been making extraordinary strides in helping HEM become more streamlined and efficient in policies and procedures. Welcome Brad!!

The elimination of the Advisory Board was noted, so we sent a very fond farewell (technically speaking) to Anndee Burchette, David Sagafi, and Robert Slayter. Although this trio may have been temporarily 'stripped' of title, the trio will continue to contribute in their own very capable ways to HEM.

We wanted to thank co-founder and longtime VP of BOD JonErick Romans!!! Although JE has moved on formally from HEM, he is still our family and we love and support him!!

HEM voted in a brand new Board of Directors, although official titles are yet to be determined.

Laural Wiley, longtime Secretary of Board, remains on BOD.

Nathan Greene, Member at large, remains on BOD.

Our HIPAA advisor and Legal Council, Michael P. Longo, was voted into the HEM BOD!!! Congrats Mike!!

Our Chief Tarpologist and Communications guru, Casey O'Gara was also voted onto the BOD!!! Congrats Casey!!

The Eugene HEM BOD members will be reconvening Monday Feb 23, at LW's house to pre plan our agenda and other items via webcast with ML & CO

Volunteer Application

Volunteer Application, to fill out an application, click here or download the .pdf file. After you fill out the form we will get back to you as soon as we are able to. Typically, Executive Staff reviews the applications as they roll in and we address them with the applicants quarterly. Sometimes it can go quicker than that when the applicant is a close confidant of a current volunteer. There is no slight intended to the random application; we are all still volunteers and we do the best we can to triage the applications in a timely fashion. Call our office at 844-HEM-WORK to help expedite the process!! Thank you for your interest in HEM~!!!!
