TAM offers a variety of programs to engage audiences in a dialogue about the plays and provide an opportunity to explore our work both before and after performances.

Classic in Context Discussions
Classics in Context fulfills our audience’s desire for in-depth information on the plays before attending each production. The series will feature four discussions with scholars and artists, focusing on the season’s offering. Audience members can attend the pre-show discussion and, after a quick tailgate dinner overlooking the lake or in the shade of the cemetery trees, attend the production that the scholars and artists have just discussed. For 2018, Classics in Context Discussions will take place on Opening Nights in July.

Post-Performance Discussions
Join us at selected weekend evening performances for a post-performance discussion with the cast and creative team. Discuss the critical historical, artistic, and cultural perspectives of the words of each individual play. For 2018, Post-performance Discussions will take place on the following Sundays: July 22 following the performance of 12th Night; July 29 following the performance of Richard III; August 5 following the performance of Dial “M” for Murder; and August 12 following the performance of Enchanted April.

Senior Shakespeare Group
TAM partners with local agencies engaging seniors one day a week for five weeks in the reading and discussion of a Shakespeare play. Participants explore the power of Shakespeare’s language and enhance understanding of the themes and characters in his works. Participants should come prepared to read and share questions, comments, and opinions on the plays. For information on starting a Shakespeare Group at your center, contact the Box Office at 207.933.9999 or boxoffice@theateratmonmouth.org.
