surprising, touching, magical
a performance experience where your stories come to life
Red Thread Playback Theatre invites you to experience the magic of deep listening & heart-driven performance.
At our shows, anyone--yes anyone!--can share a moment from their day or a story from their life. We listen attentively, and then, with the goals of respecting and honoring the teller's story, we bring the story to life on the stage, instantly, as you sit back and watch...
and witness the red threads of human existence that connect us all.
