Taste & Chat
6PM Pre-Show (First Preview)
This event is the new and improved version of “Taste of Tuesday.” Still catering to subscribers and now open to the community, this event offers free catered food from a local restaurant and wine tasting from Castle Wines. “The Chat” is a Q+A portion of the event where a member from the production or the community will talk for 15 minutes with a WCP staff member about the performance our patrons will shortly see. Patrons are encouraged to ask questions to guest speakers. Conversations are not limited to production. Questions and comments can be centered around their journey in the theatre industry or work in the community. Please call the Box Office for more information.
