Giveaways, meet-and-greets with representatives from companies large and small, special programming for children, and performances are all on the menu at this rousing celebration of the 2019-2020 theatre season. It’s all free and open to theater lovers and newcomers alike.
Special Panel Conversation:
The Kickoff Party will begin with a special panel conversation - The Future of Washington Theatre. From 11am-12pm, Peter Marks, Washington Post Theater Critic, will speak to three new artistic directors - Maria Goyanes of Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company, Raymond Caldwell of Theater Alliance, and Chil Kong of Adventure Theatre MTC - about stepping into their roles at the helm of established Washington theatres, their vision for moving these institutions forward, and engaging their communities. No additional ticket is needed. Seating is first-come, first-serve and there will be standing room available.
