One night only! Do NOT miss it.
You’re invited to an evening of stories, memories, improv, music, movements and live painting! Milwaukee’s very own Playback improvisational theatre group will bring their creative, interactive storytelling and entertainment to our Blue Box Theater space. The audience (you!) tell the conductor your story and the performers will play it back!
In Playback Theatre, an audience member tells a true-life story and then watches as Playback players re-enact the story on the spot. The stories may be funny or tragic or anything in-between, with the intention always to honor the storyteller.
