Pollinator Protectors with Sustainable Arlington

May 16 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Saturday, May 16, 2-3:30 pm
In partnership with Sustainable Arlington
True Story Theater will invite volunteers to share about what pollinators mean to us, our food, our native plants, and birds — all the ways that this crucial and imperiled group of creatures matters to us and how we can help them.
This is an opportunity to share experiences, feelings, hopes, and concerns as well as ideas for working together in the community to protect pollinators and create supportive habitats in our yards and beyond.
Sustainable Arlington and other groups will provide resources for the next steps for you to play a part in protecting pollinators.

Register in advance for this show.
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about how to sign in.

Donations greatly appreciated, please give what you can ($5 to $30+) to help support the arts.

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.
