Jamming takes its name from the musical concept of jamming, where musicians gather, play, improvise and have fun with music.

Jamming in Playback Theatre offers you an opportunity to gather with like-minded individuals to explore and play with the different Playback Theatre forms.

If you have an interest in telling stories, playing games, meeting new people and exploring what Playback is about, then join us for Jamming every first Sunday of the month!

Participants are asked to wear comfortable tops and long bottoms but not jeans. Oh, and bring a snack to share :) and your own water bottle.

Each session is limited to 20 participants. Please register your interest at

Playback Theatre is a unique form of improvisational theatre that engages people to share their stories or moments from their life, and gives them an opportunity to see their stories recreated immediately on stage.

It combines the oral traditions of story-telling, the use of rituals, deep listening skills and various performing styles. Essentially, Playback Theatre uses the arts as an act of service to affirm each person’s uniqueness, and at the same time builds and strengthens our connections to each other as a community of people.
