STORYTELLERS FOR THIS ROUND will soon be announced!
How does BACKFENCE PDX: ROULETTE work? Each show begins with a giant game show size wheel packed with juicy story prompts. One of our five seasoned storytellers is randomly drawn. To determine the random prompt for their story, they spin that giant wheel! They can play or pass their prompt (once). If they pass, another teller can steal their prompt. Then the risky part… each storyteller has only 5 minutes to come up with a true 5-minute story based on their prompt! It’s like we invented a new game called truth AND dare. The audience votes on a winner at the end of the night – both the storyteller winner and one lucky audience member win a veritable bevy of prizes! We’ll have some other new surprises for 2023 shows!
When you buy tickets to our shows you automatically help support our Triple 10 Donation Coalition! What is that you say? Both the shows and the venue have committed to donating portions of profits to support the community. BACKFENCE PDX: ROULETTE has donated 10% of all ticket sales to Oregon Food Bank since 2016, and will continue to do so, to fight food insecurity. 10% of ticket profits from the BAD DATES show go to the Q Center and the work they do supporting our LGBTQ+ community as everyone deserves to be loved just as they are. And ALBERTA HOUSE will set aside 10% of its bar sales into the BACKFENCE PDX Community Pot, providing assistance to those who need funding to hold events at Alberta House.
