During the first hour, we’ll talk with Amber Jackson, SCR’s ticket services director. In that position, Jackson manages the theatre’s ticketing database and Box Office staff. She has worked at SCR for seven years and in her current position for five. Before SCR, Jackson worked for Live Nation Entertainment as box office manager for House of Blues on the Sunset Strip and Downtown Disney. She has been working in entertainment ticketing for 20 years and has a bachelor’s and master’s in theatre. 

During the second hour, we’ll talk with Amy Aquino, who plays the role of Sara Goode. SCR audiences may remember Aquino from last season’s production of The Siegel or the 2007 production of A Feminine Ending. She performed in Wendy Wasserstein’s The Heidi Chronicles on Broadway and, more recently, in Wasserstein’s Third at Lincoln Center. Aquino has numerous acting credits at theatres across the country and in New York and currently stars in the series “Bosch” on Amazon.  

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.
