Mission Statement

Social healing through improvisational theatre: Our mission is to build empathy and respect in community through honoring all of our true stories.


True Story Theater is a nonprofit theater company that offers 75-100 improvisational performances and workshops a year for community groups, businesses, and individuals mostly in the greater Boston area. We work with hospitals, universities, corporations, religious communities... with teen leaders, cancer survivors, activists, philanthropists, business leaders... as well as for weddings, birthdays, and other private events.

In performances, volunteers from the audience are helped to share what’s important in their lives. On the spot, actors then portray the heart of what they heard using music, movement, and dialogue. From this simple interaction, people laugh, cry, share fresh insights, and bond. Our events create a respectful atmosphere where every voice can be heard and any story told - however ordinary or extraordinary, difficult or joyful. True Story Theater offers audiences fresh perspectives, deeper connections, and a renewed appreciation for our common humanity.
