TALKBACK THURSDAY (On Stage + Online / Hybrid)

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.

VocalEye – Vigil
Wednesday, December 7

For patrons with low or no vision, this season we will offer two online VocalEye performances (Vigil and The Unplugging).

For Vigil, the virtual lobby opens at 6:30 pm for socializing, the official welcome at 6:45 with an intro to the show and then the show starts at 7:00 pm. Afterwards, we have a Q and A and a prize draw.

During VocalEye performances, 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.

Please visit the Box Office for details.
