Share your summertime stories.

Summer often is a time of change of our daily routines. It also is a time that often evokes memories from the past. If it be vacations at the beach with family, barbecues in the neighborhood, biking around town, or eating melting ice cream, we all have stories of our experiences in summer. What pleasures of summer do you still get to experience this year, and what are you missing?  How is your summer routine the same as years past, and how is it different? Come with your recent and your old stories of summer, and participate in this intergenerational event for any and every age!

Suggested donation $5 -$25

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.
