Tours & Talkbacks
Peek behind the curtain at the Purple Rose!
Free backstage tours offer an insider’s look at a professional theatre.
Groups of 15 to 50 visitors can enjoy a full-access tour of the theatre – including backstage areas, scene shop, business offices and more – as well as Q & A with Purple Rose staff, live demonstrations of technical elements, an overview of Purple Rose history and insight into actor rituals and theatre traditions.
Tours are available by appointment only and may be scheduled on Tuesday or Thursday mornings during production weeks. Contact Heidi Bennett for details and availability.
Join us for a talkback – a post-performance Q & A – and participate in an open forum discussion with Purple Rose artistic staff.
Preview talkbacks with the director and playwright follow the first five performances of each production and provide audience members the opportunity to ask questions and give feedback about shows in the final stages of rehearsal.
Talkbacks can also be scheduled upon request depending upon staff availability. If you would like to request a talkback for your group, mention it to our group sales manager, Julia Garlotte, when making your reservation.
