Rogue Pack is a non-profit theatre School in the Sellwood neighborhood of Portland, OR.
We facilitate writing and performance instruction where youth write their stories, devise a script, and create a show culminating in a public performance, as both performers and behind-the-scenes technicians.
Rogue Pack was a great benefit to the youth giving them not only school credit, but the opportunity to learn skills such as communication and team building that can help them to be successful when they return to their communities.
Throughout the sessions, we watch our youth visibly grow and change to be more comfortable with themselves, build skills to make healthy connections with others, and use art as a way to process their life experiences.
Rogue Pack is an outstanding theatre program... [RP] classes have connected with middle school youth who typically have a hard time feeling successful at school. The curriculum is rigorous and exciting and I hope to keep them working with our students.
Rogue Pack gave our girls a space to explore who they were, laugh, take healthy risks, build self-esteem, and feel successful. I highly enjoyed seeing the transformation in the girls from day one where they were resistant to participating and scared to the final production where they were full of confidence and proud.
Rogue Pack has had an extremely positive impact on the emotional and physical well-being of the girls served here. Rogue Pack creates a safe and fun environment for vulnerable youth to build confidence and develop skills that they have never used before. Rogue Pack encourages girls to work together and motivate one another to their fullest potential.
It was a true pleasure to work with the Rogue Pack team. They bring a super high level of professionalism and energy with them every day and our youth benefited greatly from the experience.
A raw and heartbreaking show that cast a bright, unfiltered light on the young adults living on city streets.
