      Playback Theatre

      Playback Theatre Sat, Nov 23 @ 2pm $10 adv / $15 day of Playback is a theatre form where actors and musicians bring to the stage true stories and story fragments that come from the audience. Playback uses many forms during one show and each one is designed to bring out important elements of each story. In one form, someone in the audience shares a story from their life, chooses the actors to play the different roles, and then all those present watch the enactment, as the story "comes to life" with musical accompaniment. At the end, the teller lets us know if we captured the essence of their story. Playback is a beautiful intersection between theatre, storytelling, and improv. In addition to being a form of entertainment, playback has been used in educational, therapeutic and business settings, as well as to address social justice issues and deal with the aftermath of tragic events. Come to Playback prepared to laugh, be moved, and to hear and share our common stories and experiences. Playback Theatre Virginia is a performance troupe based in Charlottesville, Virginia. Directed by Larry Goldstein, players include Boomie Pedersen, Deborah Arenstein, Michelle James, Abena Foreman Trice, Kristen Atkins, and Jennifer Peart. **This is final sale.
