The Centre for Playback Theatre offers comprehensive training in Playback Theatre, a form of personal improvisational theatre, valuing story, ritual, and community. Courses range from one day to three weeks and are sequential. We offer courses twice a year in New York, as well as in other US locations and other countries. Watch our website for updates. Students usually take about three years to complete the program, which culminates in a diploma.

At the Centre you will receive personal attention and guidance from Playback’s founders and international leaders. Class size is strictly limited to give you the opportunity to practice new learning. The School is also a place for rich exchange between students from around the world.

The Centre aims to make training possible for all who wish it, and our scholarship policy is based on relative need. To request a scholarship for any course, we ask you to complete a simple form. Download your application here, fill it out, and email it to the Centre. Application deadlines may vary.
