Pre-Show Lectures

Great theatre inspires dynamic conversation, and Rep Stage has several programming opportunities for our patrons to be a part of these conversations. For our Pre-Show Lectures we host experts in their fields whose work has a connection to the themes and content of each play.

Pre-Show lectures occur on the final Saturday of each production’s run, directly before the 2:00 PM matinee. These lectures are free of charge and need no reservations or tickets.
