Join Playback Memphis Ensemble Member Bob Klyce to learn how to use the tools of Playback theatre to approach life with humor and optimism.

This session will examine how we can use humor to relieve stress and unlock joy in our lives. You will be led in brief exploratory activities and have the opportunity to participate in reflections about what you learned. No acting experience is necessary, simply an interest in learning more about our art form.

Please note: This is not a performance.
