Audience Engagement

Home / Audience Engagement

The Synergy Series. Dig Deeper.

Our audience engagement programs, known as the Synergy Series, offer you the opportunity to engage with the Playhouse in a variety of stimulating ways beyond just seeing a play. From actor and director talkbacks to partnerships with area libraries, to post-show 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.

Curtain Conversations

After the curtain falls, join us for a post-show conversation, moderated by a member of the Gulfshore Playhouse staff, to have a discussion with your fellow audience members about the themes and ideas of the play. Curtain Conversations may feature special guests from the region or the production to further enhance the discussion.
