Theatre in the Mind | Alabama Shakespeare Festival

Theatre in the Mind

Spend your Saturday gaining new insights into ASF productions through the acclaimed Theatre in the Mind lecture discussions. Designed around the plays presented each season, you can participate in free pre-show discussions, author, cast, designer and director talks at ASF, most Saturdays at noon. Please see the schedule below for dates.

Hosted by Dr. Susan Willis, ASF’s resident dramaturg, these entertaining and thought-provoking lectures by noted theatre scholars complement a perfect Saturday afternoon at the theatre.

Theatre in the Mind is free and open to the public. You do not need to be a ticket holder to that day’s performance to attend the lecture. Reservations are not required; you may pick up your ticket at the door just before each lecture.

Theatre in the Mind is graciously sponsored by Auburn University Montgomery.
