About performances & classes

A Playback performance is more than just entertainment. Audience members laugh, cry, get insights about their life, and feel an expanded sense of community. You can share a moment from your life and see it performed, or just come to watch. We perform monthly in Arlington plus additional shows around town.

Our Playback classes are friendly, informal, and intimate, an enriching experience for both newcomers and experienced actors.

Community planning dialogues

July 11 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

- Free
Do you ever ride the bus on Mass Ave in Arlington?  If yes, come learn about the town’s plans to help your bus trip be faster. Then watch audience members’ responses reflected back — through theatre!
Wed. July 11, 7-9pm.  FREE
Robbins Library Community Room 
700 Mass Ave., Arlington
All ages welcome
First, the town representatives will describe the various experiments in “Bus Rapid Transit” (BRT) that they are considering for a one month experiment this fall. Then True Story Theater will invite an audience member to briefly share their thoughts and feelings or hopes and concerns about the ideas presented.  On the spot, actors will reflect back the essence of what was shared, using movement, music and dialogue.  About a dozen people will get to speak during the hour — and there will be written ways to give input as well.  Come to share or just to watch and learn. The town planners will be listening carefully.  They want to hear from you!
If the experiment goes well this fall, hopefully Bus Rapid Transit will become an ongoing reality in Arlington and your bus trips will all be faster and smoother!

This program is supported in part by a grant from the Arlington Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.
