COLDWATER – Talkbacks, held the first Saturday of each Tibbits main-stage show, are a popular way for theatre-goers to get backstage knowledge from the professional summer theatre company. These sessions are scheduled for July 8, July 29, and August 12.
After the curtain falls at the end of the performance, audience members who want to stay and talk with the cast and crew are welcome to attend a short Q & A session. The director, cast, designers, and technicians assemble onstage while those audience members who do not want to attend the talkback exit, allowing for the rest of the audience to move closer to the front of the theatre to ask their questions. Artistic Director Charles Burr helps guide the short talkback session through audience questions that range from popular topics such as background information on the cast and crew; audition, callback, and casting information; or questions regarding acting and design choices or historical context of the show.
There is no additional cost for the talkback. Tickets for the shows can be purchased at the Tibbits box office Monday through Friday 9 am to 6pm, online at Tibbits.org, or by calling 517-278-6029.
