What is Playback Theatre

What is Playback Theatre

Playback Theatre is an improvisational method of building entertaining, inspiriting and healing audiences originally developed by Johnathan Fox. We are a musical theater troupe that provides an interactive and improvisational performance. Our Playback Theatre actresses have received dramatic and sensitivity training, as well as therapeutic background. This provides an exciting, memorable and safe experience. Audience members tell real life stories and watch them played live. This unifies the audience or group for whom we are performing, allows for validation of feelings, encourages empathy for mutually shared experiences, and provides fun and entertainment. Audiences enjoy our performances, ask for encores, and want us back.
