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.

LGBTQ+ Intergenerational Stories

May 11 @ 7:30 pm - 9:15 pm

- $5 – $30

Saturday, May 11th
7:30pm

Come to an evening of intergenerational exchange and community building between people who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, gender non-binary, queer, and questioning (LGBTQ+).
At each event, participants will be invited to spontaneously share moments of their true life experience.

This evening will be especially for hearing stories from LGBTQ+ seniors and youth. We also welcome families and friends and allies in the general public to come and support.

On the spot, True Story Theater actors will capture in music, movement, and dialogue the emotional essence of what as shared.
Additionally, seniors and youth who participated* in our previous performance/workshops for LGBTQ+ Seniors (May 4) and LGBTQ+ Youth (May 8) will be invited to perform some simple forms of Playback Theatre with the troupe.
