Audience Enrichment

Inside the Season

Join us for two-hour, interactive Saturday morning seminars that reveal secrets and offer fascinating insights into our nine season productions. Conducted by members of the literary staff, these lively sessions feature in-depth interviews with cast members, people from the creative team and artisans from SCR's production staff. Discover how the industry's most accomplished theatre professionals breathe life into plays on the Segerstrom and Julianne Argyros stages. Audience questions and comments are encouraged, and you might even get invited onstage to explore the set!

Sessions of "Inside the Season" take place from 10:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m., usually preceding the second Saturday matinee of each production. Tickets are $12 per session and can be purchased in advance as well as at the door.

Post-Show Discussions

Following selected performances of Segerstrom and Argyros productions, a literary staff member—in most cases, the production dramaturg—moderates informal question-and-answer sessions with actors from the cast. This unique opportunity to access firsthand information about the production from the actor's perspective—and to give them your immediate feedback—is guaranteed to enhance the theatre-going experience. Post-Show Discussions begin approximately five minutes after the end of the performance and typically last 20-30 minutes.
