Many of our productions are ideal for scouting troops, religious youth groups, and other social organizations. If your group wants to give its members, young or old, an entertaining experience and a new perspective on theater, we have just the ticket.

GROUP DISCOUNTS

Your organization’s members will receive a 20% discount off the regular ticket price when you bring a group of fifteen (15) or more to a show.

POST- SHOW ARTIST TALKBACKS

To help make your outing special, ask Kelsey Theatre’s staff about arranging a post-show artist talkback. Arrangements can be made to invite cast, designers and directors of the show back out on stage for an informal discussion with your group and other members of the audience.

This is your chance to ask questions about the production and offer your feedback. Ask an actor about the challenges of their role. Ask a director about her vision for the show and what inspired it. Ask whatever you like. This is a great chance to meet members of the cast and crew and get a peek behind the scenes.

THEATER TOURS

Speaking of a peek behind the scenes, Kelsey Theatre offers brief (10-15 minute) tours of the theatre for youth groups. Kids can walk on stage, visit the dressing rooms and workshop, climb through the catwalks high above the theater, and visit the lighting booth. Along the way, a member of Kelsey Theatre’s staff can provide background about the facility and the show your group just watched.

To plan an outing for your group, please contact Kelsey Theatre (609-570-3333) for arrangements.

Requests for talkbacks and tours must be made at least two weeks prior to the show.
