Audience Enrichment

Inside the Season

Join us for 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 two-hour 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., on select Saturdays during the run of a show. Tickets are $12 per session and can be purchased in advance as well as at the door.

201​6-1​7 Season Dates:

Saturday, January 14, 2017

From the crew, we’ll be joined by stage manager Kathryn Davies. She’s been doing shows with SCR regularly since 2008. Having done Red last season (and Topdog/Underdog in 2012), she’s mastering the art of managing the two-person casts. She’s also got an extensive background in opera and film; we’ll hear all about her many adventures.

From the cast, we’re sitting down with Tessa Auberjonois, who plays Robyn. Tessa was last seen in Mr. Wolf, and is a veteran of SCR stages, having previously appeared in shows such as Absurd Person Singular and Becky Shaw and countless readings. She’ll tell us all about what it’s like to make up 50% of the cast.

Post-Show Discussions

Following selected performances of Segerstrom and Argyros productions, a literary staff member​ moderates informal question-and-answer sessions with actors from the cast. This unique opportunity to access firsthand information about the ​play 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.
