All ages

Stick around for a few minutes after the curtain call to chat with the actors! Learn about the play, the production, life as an actor, or anything that takes your fancy.

Staged reading of an original musical that tells the story of Eleanor Roosevelt’s journey from a shy, young aristocrat to her emergence as a powerful catalyst for social change. It tells of the passionate courtship and bittersweet marriage to Franklin, and ultimately, of the surprising partnership that so dramatically changed the face of 20th Century America as well as the entire world.

Beyond the stage

A family friendly, interactive performance introduces children and parents to the ""fascinatin’ rhythms" of George and Ira Gershwin. The David Leonhardt Jazz Group and the Shelley Oliver Tap Ensemble unite for an educational and inspiring presentation designed to introduce younger audiences to tap dancing and jazz through the use of creative improvisation in rhythm and melody. Audience participation is encouraged through singing, clapping, scatting, and movement to structure a one-of-a-kind performance every time.

Beyond the stage

Enjoy an informal and informative pre-show gathering in the mezzanine and learn about that evening’s performance of A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum. Hosted by the Artistic and Education departments. No reservations required.
