Catch a glimpse of the production process! We are pleased to offer groups of 10 or more middle and high school students (grades 6-12) and their teachers the chance to view a working dress rehearsal at the Kravis Center. While watching the mainstage performance, participants will notice the production crew (director, stage manager, designers) in the theater, working hard to fine-tune the show before the opening night performance! Although admission is free, tickets are required and seating is limited.
