Playback Theater Classes: Not just for actors!

Develop your intuition, creativity, empathy, and spontaneity as you learn how to improvise real-life stories. Playback Theater transforms real stories told by audience members into theater, on the spot, using movement, ritual, spoken improvisation and music. This is a series of seven classes; the first class is a trial class. Instructor Roni Alperin is an experienced actor, theater director, improv artist, Accredited Trainer of Playback Theater, LMFT (Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist), and RDT (Registered Drama Therapist).
Dates: Mon 1/13-3/2 (no class 2/17)
