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