Open Rehearsals – First Wednesdays

You are invited on the first Wednesday of each month to join the River Crossing Playback ensemble in a free Open Rehearsal.

Come, watch or join in on any Wednesday, 7-9 pm at the Belmont Theatre, 27 South Belmont Ave in York, Pennsylvania (formerly York Little Theatre). The two hours, if you choose to participate fully, would include:

  • Physical warm-up or game to “get out of our heads” and wake up our creative improvisational capacities;
  • An embodied game or exercise to develop some aspect of improvisational skillset: listening, responding, moving, vocalizing, ensemble contact and more;
  • “Checking In” to say what’s “on top” for each of us and have that acknowledged using a responsive Playback theatre form;
  • Learning and using various Playback theatre forms to respond to the essence and deep notes of each check-in and story told.

The Open Rehearsal is a new offering in South Central PA to open the circle of the unique embodied process of Playback Theatre to strengthen our community connections, build skills for deep listening and enhance our innate capacity to create beauty in each moment.

Simply RSVP to by the prior Tuesday (24 hours) or call (717) 382-8292 with questions.

Arrive between 6:50-7 PM. Bring a water bottle. Wear loose-fitting clothes. See you there?
