Theater J's Beyond the Stage community engagement events offer an array of innovative public discussion forums and outreach programs which explore the theatrical, psychological and social elements of each production. Partnering with civic leaders and members of other faiths, organizations and communities, each discussion stresses the importance of interchange among a great variety of people wishing to take part in frank, humane conversations about conflict and culture.
Having attended quite a few in my seven years here, I can tell you they are lively, enriching and powerful. They have quite an impressive line-up for The Hampton Years that you'll want to be sure to check out.
