First Look Rehearsal

At this FREE event at the Bruns Amphitheater, Artistic Director Eric Ting will moderate a Q&A conversation with the director on the concepts for the production and the process of directing the play, followed by an opportunity to watch part of a technical rehearsal.

OPENING NIGHT
Experience the thrill of opening night at Cal Shakes! Celebrate and mingle with the cast and creative team at a free post-show party.

GROVE TALKS
45 minutes prior to each performance, our resident Grove Talk speakers lead a 20-minute discussion of the play's text, history, and dive deep into the elements that make our production special, including the director's point of view, the designers' process, and actors' approaches to the work.

CIVIC DIALOGUES
Cal Shakes’ Civic Dialogue Series seeks to explore the intersections between theater and issues affecting our community and explore topics related to our productions and organizational practices.

MEET THE ARTISTS
This post-show discussion series provides an opportunity to discuss the plays with members of the cast. Meet the Artists immediately follows select 4pm Sunday matinees and is free and open to the public.

OPEN-CAPTIONED PERFORMANCES
Open captioning utilizes an unobtrusive screen at the front of the theater to display dialogue spoken during a performance. No special equipment is required by patrons; one can simply glance at the screen to read the text while watching the action on stage.

INSIGHT MATINEES
This post-show conversation is moderated by the dramaturg exploring the world of the play. InSight takes place in the Bruns Amphitheater immediately following select 4pm Sunday matinees and is free and open to the public.
