What's it like at a Playback theater show?
It's fun. You can talk to people without the constraints of normal public social settings.
Our shows are all about storytelling, and seeing your story come to life on stage. That's a magical feeling. You witness this as an audience member, and suddenly you are intimate with the teller. The trusting environment grows, and people feel more and more safe to share their life experiences with the community.
There's a wonderful concept in Playback theater called the "red thread." one teller relates a story that somehow inspires a memory in the next teller that is unique, but emotionally or thematically related to the pros story. This continues all night and before you know it we have transformed from an evening out at the theater to a family or village.
Often people don't want to go home after the show. We linger and chat. Sometimes if the show ends with great dance music we get a cool dance party going.
We invite you to come to the show, enjoy, and join the playback family.
