  • post performance discussions
  • Continuing legal education seminars (CLE) for credit
  • work with school children

Doorways programs are designed to open the doors to greater understanding and enjoyment of the plays we present and to give deeper insights into the subjects and issues they address. Each production of the season has Doorways programs to enhance the artistic and educational value of the work you see onstage.  Our post performance discussions feature esteemed guests who are professionals in our community. They join us to provide further information on topics in the production, and foster stimulating conversation with those in attendance. Our CLE programs are co-sponsored by the law firm of Fredrikson & Byron, P.A.
