Reve Shannon, actor, writer, and performer who you may remember was very involved locally in the theater and was also director of the County Fair for a while,  will be leading/directing a Playback Theater event on Saturday. Keith Busha will  provide the musical landscape for the performances.

Playback Theater is an improvisational theater form that draws stories from the audience and then plays-back the stories with acting, movement and music. Actors and audience participate in theater and storytelling that can be validating, healing and transformative. Stories are “played back” with an artistic aesthetic, ritual and integrity.

What will happen at the Workshop?
This participatory workshop is for anyone interested or curious about PBT. We will loosen up with some simple “theater games” and then have some fun playing with a couple of the forms used in PBT.

No theater experience is necessary!
