The 2013 summer Festival Noons series begins June 18
Join us this summer on Wednesdays and Fridays for lectures given by OSF company artists and visiting scholars. On Thursdays attend a Preface Plus, a 45 minute introduction to a play followed by a 15 minute question and answer period. On Saturdays participate in panel discussions, demonstrations, and on-your-feet workshops for the whole family. Tuesdays and Sundays we hold free Park Talks with OSF company members.
All lectures and Preface Plus are held in Carpenter Hall at noon. Tickets are available online or at the Box Office. $10.00; $9.00 for members; $8.00 for youths (ages 6 – 17.) Free Park Talks are held in the Bill Patton Garden at noon. Please be on time.
