“Our mission is to honor and illuminate the lives of individuals and communities by using theater, music and movement. Our intention is to bear witness to the differences among people and to foster the universality of the human experience, thereby creating social awareness and inherent connection that can lead to social action. It is our intention that Playback can offer an opportunity to re-envision yourself and your community.”

- Jackie Paris

“TRANSFORMATIVE…I highly recommend Playback Theater for their outstanding work and excellent sense of humor and drama. They are a fine group to bring art and understanding to critical issues that occur for schools and community groups. Their performances contributed a great deal to unifying students and faculty in creating a more positive campus.”

- Margaret O’Brien, principal of Kau School.
