The Forum Series

Community and Audience Engagement: From Main Stage to Main Street

Sponsored by Steven and Catie Buckingham

The Forum Series:

Held on the Wednesdays before Opening, these conversations take themes from the current production, connecting Main Stage to Main Street. Through facilitated discussion featuring expert panelists, we have tackled the issues of sexual acceptance in the South, nostalgia during the holidays, leaving a legacy, and the hidden costs of desire.

ALL Forums are free and open to the public. The conversation begins at 6:30pm.

Sweat: Right to Work - October 10th, 2018
