Community Engagement — Join our village!

We don’t just want you in the audience, you want you as part of our community!

We often cast community performers — please consider auditioning!

We supplement our curriculum with guest speakers and workshops, and community members are welcome to attend many of these events. Check our facebook page or calendar on this website for upcoming events.

Curious about some aspect of what you saw onstage? Gather with our artists and scholars for free post-performance conversations. Check the information pages for each production as performances approach for the full details.

Bring your students and group members to student matinees. (Students of all ages are welcome, not just kids!) Chaperones get in free, and there are discounts for large groups.

If you're studying a particular play in class or on your own, we may have study resources available from a past production.

Teachers, let us be a resource for you as you study performance in your classroom. Our students and instructors are available for free in-school workshops with your students.

Our students mount their own free independent productions which are open to the public and often free — come to a show! Check our facebook page for upcoming events

If you’re interested in getting more involved with theater in any of these ways, check our website or facebook for announcements, or contact us to be put on our mailing list.
