UPCOMING EVENT: “Art of Adaptation”

Thursday, November 21

Like many other hit musicals of the last decade, Scotland, PA draws its inspiration from a familiar source: the silver screen. When creating a musical, having well-known source material can directly influence the writing process in a myriad of ways. Join us after the performance to hear playwright Douglas Carter Beane (Xanadu, Sister Act), Scotland, PA creators Adam Gwon and Michael Mitnick, and one other guest artist to-be-announced talk about the process of adapting a film into a stage musical.

Theatre Talks

Every week, learn more about the history of the production and its creators.

A Roundabout teaching artist leads a lively discussion between you and your fellow patrons before the show begins.

Discussions are complimentary for those attending the performance on the following evenings.

Celebrity Series

Roundabout’s Celebrity Series brings members of the cast and crew to you, when a Roundabout teaching artist leads a 20-minute post-show discussion about what really happens behind the scenes of a production. 

Lecture Series

Explore the themes of each production after the curtain goes down.

Stay in your seats after the performance to attend a 50-minute discussion with a member of the creative team, distinguished artist, scholar, historian, or critic, hosted by a Roundabout teaching artist.

Teachers Night Series

Take a break from class, and then bring theatre back to your classroom. Roundabout offers substantial discounts to our shows to teachers with a valid union card. This series also includes a pre-show talk and a lively post-show discussion between you and your fellow Teachers Night Series subscribers. (One union card for every two subscriptions.)

Community Conversations

Community Conversations is a pilot program that aims to foster reflection, conversation, and connection, striving to deepen audience members experience with the play and to each other. This format is intended to create space for audience members to share their experience, building a sense of mutual understanding and therefore, a stronger Roundabout community.

Community Conversations are free, open to all, and last 20 minutes.

Other Theatre Plus Activities

Periodically, Roundabout hosts ancillary events with thematic relevance to a particular production, such as complimentary post-show talkbacks with special guests.
