Program Details: Open to the public

Classics 101 with the Colorado Shakespeare Festival

Learn all about the plays in CSF's 2020 season from the experts - our dramaturgs. A dramaturg is a theatre scholar who researches a play. Join the Colorado Shakespeare Festival dramaturgs for behind-the-scenes discussions on the productions presented. This informal lecture series is a great way to learn about the historical context, production history and behind-the-scenes aspects of the plays. This program is free and open to the public. All presentations begin at 6:30 p.m. at the Boulder Public Library, and conclude with a drawing for free tickets to opening night of the play being discussed.

Monday, June 8 at 6:30 pm: All’s Well That Ends Well (dramaturg, Heidi Schmidt)
