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.

From the production team, my guest will be costume designer Sara Clement. Sara’s an SCR veteran, designing a wide variety of shows from our fanciful theatre for young audience productions to more serious contemporary fare like ​4,000 Miles. Come hear how she approached a play that is a decidedly modern—yet period—piece.

From the cast, we’ll be joined by Shannon Cochran, who plays Nora. This is Shannon’s SCR return after appearing in 2007 in System Wonderland, and she’s fresh off of performing in another play by Lucas Hnath—The Christians at Chicago’s Steppenwolf theatre. She’s done a number of shows in Chicago, including the world premiere of Picasso at the Lapin Agile by Steve Martin. Shannon is also known for her film and television work, including The Ring and Star Trek: Nemesis.

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.
