Playback theater at Cherry Garden Community Center

   Exercise your imagination with games, stories, color and music on Saturday, Oct. 17, 10-12 a.m. for adults, and Saturday, Nov. 14, 10-12 a.m. for children eight and older at the Cherry Garden Community Center.
   Playday offers a chance to experience the method of playback theater by participating in all aspects of the process. The magic of playback theater begins as someone steps from the audience and describes a personal experience: a current event, a memory, a moment. Music is played while the actors set the stage and assume their roles. Using movement, sound, dialogue and silence, the actors replay the story in a way which attempts to capture the essential meaning of the story.
   For more information, call Romni at 425-376-0204.
