YOUR Stories on Stage

Improv Performance for Training, Community and Fun

Portland Playback Theatre, now in our 10th year, joins the art of improvisation with real-life stories spontaneously shared by members of the audience. Using movement, dialogue and music, our actors seek to honor the countless moments and events that shape our lives.

“It was incredible how they understood all the stories and were able to bring laser-like focus to the real-life events being shared. Watching them being “played back” was wonderful… I laughed so hard I cried.” -Pam Avery Witham
