Playback Theatre celebrates 15 years, 115 performances
With Uke Oyster Cult
Friday, October 11, 7:30 p.m.
Traditions (300 5th Ave SW, Oly)
We are beginning our 2013 – 2014 season by celebrating 115 performances on our 15th Anniversary performing at Traditions Café. We have collaborated with over 90 community organizations shared the stage with many guest musicians, dancers and actors.
We are also honoring our Community Partnership with The Centre for Playback Theatre. The Centre offers training courses in playback theatre and provides support to playback theatre companies all over the world.
Our guest musicians this month are the Uke Oyster Cult—Olympia’s biggest ukulele band. Their eclectic repertoire includes Americana, hapa-haole, sing-a-longs, and songs that should never be played on the ukulele.
Playback Theatre is a spontaneous collaboration between performers and audience. People tell moments from their lives, then watch them re-created with movement, music and dialogue. Each month we invite a guest artist(s), community organization, arts program or social service agency to be a part of our performance. Through this collaboration we acknowledge and honor the work individuals and organizations do in our community.
Cost: Suggested donation $5-$10. (No one is turned away.)
