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 our productions through pre-show conversations with local theatre professionals and special guests from our community.

Each session is planned with that evening’s performance in mind. Past Pre-Show Chats have featured a variety of Royal MTC staff, local artists, academic experts, and more! Pre-Show Chats are free with your ticket!  

The half-hour session begins at 6:30pm. Following the presentation, the lobby and bar will be open, so you can relax and enjoy a beverage before the performance begins at 7:30pm.
