Heartsparkle Players is a multicultural company that uses Playback
Theatre and other interactive theatre techniques as tools for community
building, education and social change. They seek to empower communities
and individuals by providing a forum for stories to be shared, heard and
What is Playback Theatre?
Audience members do not simply watch a Playback Theatre performance. They
actively participate in it. The material for each performance comes directly
from an audience member's personal story. People tell moments from their
lives, then watch them re-created with movement, music and dialogue. The
teller can experience a sense of personal validation seeing their story
honored in a new light. The entire audience can gain a new perspective
as they hear each other’s stories. They can discover the subtle,
sometimes striking differences and commonalities that reside within the
life experiences of any group.
Each month the company invites a guest artist, community organization,
arts program or social service agency to be a part of the performance.
Through this collaboration the Heartsparkle Players acknowledge and honor
the work individuals and organizations do in our community.
