Urbanite Idea Exchange

At Urbanite Theatre, we believe that theatre has the power to start the conversations that can change communities. To pursue art in action, we offer a series of free, enriching outreach programs that carry the momentum of our performances into the community.

Talkback Thursdays

After every Thursday performance, join the actors from the show for a short conversation about the process behind making the production come to life. These lively, insightful discussions are great opportunities to engage directly with professional theater artists about the challenges, breakthroughs and discoveries that make each process unique. Free, approximately 15-20 minutes.

Community Forums

Urbanite Community Forums are brief, illuminating discussions that take place immediately following a performance. These talks are designed to enhance the theatergoing experience by connecting audiences with experts in their fields to examine the themes, concepts, and questions explored in our productions. Free, approximately 30 minutes.
