Beyond the Stage - In Darfur

 


 

Theater J offers a variety of programs to engage our audience beyond the stage.  Below is the current schedule of Artistic Director Roundtables, Peace Cafés and Cast Talk Backs.  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.
