Heartsparkle Players Public Performance Schedule

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, community organization, arts program or social service agency to be part of our performance. Through this collaboration we acknowledge and honor the work individuals and organizations do in our community.
