Have you ever been watching a play at the Playhouse and thought to yourself: “Gee, I wonder how they built that?” or “How many times did they have to practice that transition?” or even “How the heck did she change costumes so fast?” Well, there is an opportunity to find out! Before each show opens, the Playhouse hosts Tech Talk, a donor benefit designed to give Friends of Westport Country Playhouse an inside look into the tech process of creating a show. Attendees have the chance to hear from David Dreyfoos, the Playhouse’s Associate Producer and Director of Production, as well as the designers and builders who create the sets, lighting, and sound. You even get to watch a bit of tech rehearsal!
Tech Talk is a benefit for Friends of the Playhouse who contribute $500 or more annually, or who are first-time donors. So if you’d like to be a Tech Talk regular, please consider making a gift to support your Playhouse! All first-time donors, regardless of donation amount, also receive an invitation to an upcoming Tech Talk (as long as you’ve provided the theater with your email address). And it just so happens that we have a Tech Talk coming up soon, so make your gift today to join us! It’s a great way to learn exactly how all those moving parts come together to create the fantastic productions you see on stage here at the Playhouse.
