Talk Theatre Interactive Lecture Series
The Rep's Backers Volunteer Board is proud to present the 17th season of this popular lecture series. This terrific program takes place the first Monday after each Mainstage opening and is always a hit with theatre enthusiasts who want to learn about and discuss the plays they see at The Rep.
Held at the beautiful Sally S. Levy Opera Center (210 Hazel Avenue, near the Loretto-Hilton Center), the Talk Theatre interactive lecture series features Rep creative staff as well as local and national professionals sharing their insights on a broad range of topics. Speakers may include directors, actors, writers, professors or any professional who can share a unique perspective relevant to the current production. Each event also includes a short explanation of the show as well as a presentation by someone from the production staff (set, costumes, lights, sound, etc.).
All programs are held from 7:30–9:00 pm unless otherwise indicated, and light refreshments are served.
