THE COLLECTIVE

Young Portland Speaks

Welcome to the Collective

Rogue Pack Theatre Collective empowers youth to succeed by sharing their stories. Students receive mentorship in all aspects of the theatrical process. From conception to performance, students experience hands-on training from working theatre professionals. 

Currently, there is no theatre company in Sellwood-Moreland developing classes for youth. We're thrilled to be able to fill that niche in the community. Our new home at Sellwood Community House is located on Spokane Street, in the heart of Sellwood. 

All classes culminate with a live performance for friends and family.

Theatre Training for Portland's Youth

Theatre classes help students of all ages to engage more in school. We activate their curiosity, creativity and engage with their learning style. 

What’s more, when kids find the courage to perform their truths on stage, they gain confidence in class and in life. 

Tuition from the Collective supports Rogue Pack, our community outreach program for underserved youth throughout the metro region.

Saturdays / 11:00-12:30pm
Ages 9-13

In this class, students will learn to act for the camera in a nurturing, craft-driven environment. We’ll use improvisation and storytelling as tools to discover an effective approach to scene study, cold readings, and auditioning techniques. Students will enjoy reading and performing “sides” from contemporary TV shows and films, as part of our scene-study process. At the end of the session, students will perform an outdoor showcase for an invited audience.
