Calvary Church – visions of community

January 29 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

Do you miss seeing True Story Theater in person?  You are warmly invited to attend the show we’re doing for the attendees of Calvary Church in Arlington–upstairs in the Fellowship Hall.  It’s a rare treat nowadays for us to do an in-person show, much less one that’s open to the public!

We’ll be inviting church participants to explore wishes and dreams for their community and its impact in the wider world.  All are welcome to share what community means in your life.

The show is free.  You’re welcome to just show up.  If you’re definitely coming, you can help us prepare by indicating your attendance here: https://www.facebook.com/events/2365899590237001/?ref=newsfeed

What happens in a True Story Theater performance?  Our events bring together the delight of improvisation with the riveting vulnerability of people sharing their personal truth.

The show’s emcee (called “the conductor”) facilitates brief, spontaneous conversations with volunteers from the audience who share their own feelings and experiences related to the show’s theme.  After each conversation, the actors and musician immediately embody the key feelings and actions they heard, using movement, music, dialogue, and superb listening. All of it is improvised on the spot. During the course of a 75 minute show, True Story enacts about 6-8 stories.

From this simple interaction, audience members laugh, cry, get insights about their lives, and feel an expanded sense of community. You can share a moment from your life and see it performed, or just come to watch.

What are True Story Theater’s classes like?  We will teach you the basic of Playback Theatre, which can hone your listening skills for everyday life.  All are welcome.  Classes are supportive, informal, intimate, and fun, an enriching experience for both newcomers and experienced actors.
