Education & Outreach


Begin your night at the theatre by exploring a component of the production you are about to see!  Subscribe to our Pre-Show Chat evening at the John Hirsch Theatre (Series 17E) for an opportunity to learn more about theatre through pre-show conversations with local theatre professionals.

Each session is planned with that evening’s performance in mind. Past Pre-Show Chats have featured a variety of MTC staff (including carpenters, wardrobe personnel and our associate artistic director), local actors, choreographers, and more!  

The half-hour session begins at 6:45pm, and before one of the six Pre-Show Chat evenings, a backstage tour will be offered at 6:00pm.

Pre-Show Chats are free with your ticket!

The Pre-Show Chat schedule for our 17/18 season will be posted in the fall.
