6th Graders Partner with Sidwell Friends School's Playback Theatre

The Sixth Graders have been studying Playback Theatre, a form improvisational theatre in which audience members tell personal stories watch them enacted on the spot by an ensemble. Sidwell Friends School has a robust Playback program, and the Sixth Graders visited their drama studio to watch a working rehearsal of their middle school Playback troupe.

Students told their stories and saw them improvised, and then were given the opportunity to join the ensemble of Playback performers. The students returned to NPS eager to experiment with their own classroom performances of Playback – a key component of the cross-curricular Drama and Ethics program at NPS.
