American Repertory Theater has announced virtual Fall 2020 Programming including the Civically Speaking discussion series; the Behind the Scenes series; and Kidding Around family programming.
“A.R.T.’s virtual fall programming engages local artists and amplifies their work in a new series called Virtually OBERON, and also includes special programming for children and their grownups with our new all-ages musical, Jack and the Beanstalk: A Musical Adventure,” said Paulus. “Later this fall, we will be co-producing the world premiere of a new play in partnership with four theaters across the country-stay tuned for details about this exciting project in the coming weeks. We are also offering three conversation series: Behind the Scenes, featuring A.R.T. artists making work; Civically Speaking, examining politics, history, and the meaning of democracy; and The Lunch Room, A.R.T.’s popular weekly talk show.”
“We believe in the transformative potential of shared space and shared experience, and we look forward to inviting audiences back into our spaces for 1776 and other future productions when health and safety guidelines allow. In the meantime, we are excited about partnering with our audiences in new ways this fall,” said Paulus.
Virtually OBERON events and Jack and the Beanstalk will have a suggested ticket price along with a pay-what-you-can option; The Lunch Room and virtual events in the in the Civically Speaking and Behind the Scenes series are free and supported by donations. Tickets can be purchased and registrations secured now for select events at americanrepertorytheater.org; additional shows and events will be available later this fall.
In addition to the virtual programming and events listed below, A.R.T. is centering several ongoing collaborations and partnerships:
