BENEDICTUS Audience Enrichment 

Theater J offers a variety of programs to engage our audience beyond the stage.  Below is the current schedule of Artistic Director Roundtables, Peace Cafes and Cast Talk Backs.  You can learn more about these programs by clicking here.  We can also develop additional programs tailored for your group to be held either here at the theater or we can bring the program to you. 


Contact Shirley Serotsky at (202) 777-3228 or email her with any further questions.
