Our Synergy Series offers you the opportunity to engage with The Playhouse in a variety of stimulating ways beyond just seeing a play. From actor and director blogs and talk backs, to partnerships with area libraries, to panel discussions and more, if we have piqued your interest with a production, we are opening new avenues for you to deepen your understanding of our show and the themes surrounding it.
Please read on for additional information or select a link to the right to see each show’s Synergy Series events.
Panel Discussions will feature experts from Southwest Florida discussing the themes and topics from each play, which will allow audience members to continue exploring. Moderated by Producing Artistic Director, Kristen Coury, the panel will be interviewed briefly about its experience with the play and then the discussion will be opened up to field questions from the audience.
