What happens in a True Story Theater performance? The cast of True Story Theater brings together the delight of improvisation with the riveting vulnerability of people sharing their personal truths.
Volunteers from the audience talk with the show’s emcee about their own feelings and experiences arising from the question: “What is it like to be YOU in Sharon?” After each conversation, the actors and musician immediately embody the key feelings and actions they heard, using movement, music, dialogue, and superb listening. Each story is then dramatically improvised on the spot. From this simple interaction, audience members laugh, cry, get insights about their lives, and feel an expanded sense of community. Whether you share a moment from your life and see it performed, or just come to watch, this can lead to deeper connections built on greater understanding, compassion, and empathy with one another – and help to reduce the divides among us.
The Sharon Pluralism Network thanks the Sharon Cultural Council and the Massachusetts Cultural Council for helping fund this event.
