FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 29 AND FRIDAY, OCTOBER 6, 2023.
The opportunity to discuss a piece of theatre after you have seen it can enhance your experience of the play.
As the Belfry produces engaging theatre that often grapples with significant issues, audience members often want to ask each other what they thought about certain ideas or a character’s reaction to a challenging situation.
Afterplay is hosted by a community facilitator, but they are not there to answer questions or to offer expert information. The goal of Afterplay – and the thrill of it – is that the conversation is audience-to-audience.
Note: For the 2023-2024 Season, Afterplay will be taking place during Community Theatre Night.
TALKBACK THURSDAY (In Person)
THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 28 FOLLOWING THE PERFORMANCE
On the third Thursday performance during the run of each show, most (usually all) of the actors return to the stage to answer your questions and provide insight into the play you have just experienced. These Q & A sessions last approximately 20 minutes.
SUNDAY, OCTOBER 1
For patrons with low or no vision, we offer one VocalEye performance during most Mainstage productions. Trained Audio Describers provide descriptions of the visual elements of the show, allowing people with low vision to enjoy the theatrical experience without missing any of the details. More information at the Box Office.
