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.

Playback Class Summer Series – Thursdays

August 29 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

- $15

Thursday, August 29
7-9 pm

Mixed-level Playback Theater Class
Focus: The many ways to “listen”

You can drop-in for 1 class or register (helpful for us to know you are coming) for any of the 7-week series. Take whichever classes work for your schedule – being offered on Saturday afternoons and Thursday evenings through the end of August.

Whether you’re trying improvisation for the first time or an experienced in Playback forms, these classes will be a fun and delightful way to connect with others, listen more skillfully, develop spontaneity, and experience playback in an intimate, honest, and safe environment. This seven-week series, with two classes a week (Sat. & Thurs), will emphasize two important aspects of Playback, listening and forms.

Thursday classes will focus on listening paired with other skills such as physicality and timing while Saturdays will emphasize learning and rehearsing forms.
