Nonprofit kids' theater moves to Sellwood Community House
Having left its former venue, Sellwood Playhouse, after its sale for demolition and residential construction, the nonprofit "Rogue Pack Theater for Youth" organization has landed at the Sellwood Community House at S.E. 15th and Spokane Street, and is currently offering summer online "theater camps" for youngsters of 9 to 13 years of age.
"We're not rigid about the age; some eight-year-olds can do well in the program, as well as those who are fourteen," said Executive Director Ann Singer. "While we're usually known for our workshops for under-served and at-risk youth, these summer sessions are for youngsters of all backgrounds, who want to learn more about theater."
During each of the two-week sessions, three "tracks" are offered: Musical theater; improvisation; and playwriting for kids.
"Because of the spike of COVID-19 coronavirus cases, we won't be offering these in person; these classes are online, and are being taught by experts. They are a very good value," Singer assured.
The camps run July 20-31, and then again from August 3-14. Each session culminates with a performance by the participating youths online.
