Share your stories of navigating difficult choices.

When faced with multiple choices and directions to go in our lives, which path do we take? In our personal life and our careers, in our relationship with others and our independent experiences, how do we navigate uncharted territory and unexpected problems?

What are the hard choices are you navigating during the pandemic? What new choices are being called for in light of the upcoming elections? How are you making new choices around racial justice?

In this performance, we look forward to playing back audience members’ stories of maneuvering difficult choices– including moments of confusion, lost hope, trust, challenge and success when we decide which direction to take.

Suggested donation $5 -$15, your support is greatly appreciated! Please make a contribution here.

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.
