Playback is a theater of story telling in which audience or workshop group members tell stories from their lives and watch them enacted on the spot. Playback Theater is sometimes considered a modality of drama therapy.

The purpose of this group is to gather a community of people who love: Playback Theater, Theater, Music, Dance, Visual Art, Improvisation, Entertainment, Creative Arts Therapy, Drama Therapy, Poetry, Healing, Catharsis, Consciousness Raising, Spirituality, Spontaneity, and Just Plain Fun. It's also a place to meet and connect with supportive and exciting new friends who share your passion for creativity, healing, and living life to the fullest.

We will gather for Public Performances, Workshops, Discussion Groups, Family Events, Trainings, Personal Events, Corporate Events and Community Gatherings.
