The Back Pack is a movement troupe that has been together performing whimsical non-spoken sketch comedy shows on stage since their days at The University of Montana, beginning in 2008. All of their work is original; created and performed entirely by the four members of the group. This production, Drawn Out, uses The Back Pack’s unique brand of storytelling featuring line drawings on large pads of paper strapped to performers, coupled with movement and dance. Their work also uses clowning, puppetry, shadows, animation, foley, and whatever else their hearts desire. The Back Pack currently creates and performs in The Back Pack Co-Lab in East Austin. The group is comprised of Pete Betcher, Katie Kohler, Justin Morley, and Jeremiah Rosenberger.
