Curtain Call Fridays
Stick around after the applause! We are thrilled to add post-performance discussions immediately following the Friday performance. Moderated by members of the department faculty and featuring a rotating array of cast and artistic team members, Curtain Call Fridays offer a rare opportunity for audience members to talk about the production, exploring topics that range from the rehearsal process to character development to the creative decisions behind the production or issues raised by the work. The discussions are free and open to all. You are welcome to attend the discussion and see the play another day. Curtain Call Fridays are sponsored by the Friends of Musical Theatre.
