PLAYBACK

Each year, over the course of 12 weeks, the high school casts of PlayBack create and perform an original play based on the themes of a Two River Theater production – and drawn from their own lives, experiences, and questions about the world.



 


PlayBack: 2.5 Minute Ride

In the 2012-2013 season, we performed a “play back” of 2.5 Minute Ride by Lisa Kron—a tour-de-force solo performance, directed by Mark Brokaw, that interweaves her father’s history as a child of the Holocaust with her family’s annual trip to an amusement park in Ohio. 2.5 Minute Ride is a funny, poignant, complex and uplifting meditation on grief, tragedy, and family. The cast is as follows: Kelsey Butler, James Fogerty, Sean Hennessy, Isaiah Keyes, Jenny McKenna, Jon Erik Nielsen, Olivia Rauso, Princess Thomas, and Chloe Triolo. PlayBack: 2.5 Minute Ride was performed in Two River’s Marion Huber Theater on June 15, 2013.


 


PlayBack: No Child…

In the 2011-12 season, ten students from seven different high schools took on education, adolescence, and their hunger to be seen and understood in an original play inspired by Nilaja Sun’s No Child….  This probing and dynamic new play, entitled One Child, was drawn from the students’ own lives and experiences, and was performed in the Marion Huber Theater.

PlayBack: Jacques Brel is Alive and Well and Living in Paris

In the 2010-2011 season, nine teenage actor/writers grappled with questions about life, love, aging, family and time – major themes in Jacques Brel is Alive and Well and Living in Paris. After 12 weeks of writing exercises, compositions, Viewpoints work, Suzuki actor training, and rehearsals, they performed an original musical in the Marion Huber Theater, entitled We Are Alive and Well.

PlayBack: Picasso at the Lapin Agile

In the 2009-2010 season, thirteen high schoolers banded together to wrestle with art, science, and the search for genius and human connection – as they create an insightful and dynamic new theater piece inspired by Picasso at the Lapin Agile by Steve Martin.
