About Playback Theater:
Playback Theater is an improvisational form of theater whereby audience members tell stories from their lives and watch them enacted on the spot by actors and musicians. Playback is a vehicle not only of personal expression, but a way to connect with the past and create a future. It is powerful and creative, allowing diverse voices to be heard and respected.
Public shows are:
- Original – no two shows are ever the same
- Create a comfortable forum to hear and tell personal stories
- Honors the individual voice of the story teller
- Builds community in a creative and engaging manner
- Wildly entertaining!
“It’s like nothing I’ve ever seen -part campfire stories, part drama, dance, metaphor, comedy, and improv all mixed in with an exuberant sort of ecstatic informal community therapy!”
