Meet the theatre professionals that put it all together in this engaging session that will lead you through the creative process of ROBIN HOOD. In this athletic take on the legendary story, an ensemble of talented actors take on multiple roles that features trickery, disguises, swordfights, and plenty of help from the audience. Participants in the Observership will witness designer presentations, the 1st rehearsal with cast read-thru, observation of rehearsals and other elements of the artistic process including a tour of the unique theatre building and the Hippodrome’s history in it. The Observership ends with a preview performance and post-show session with the cast and creative team. Price of preview ticket included! Gift certificate can be issued in lieu of the preview ticket.

Following the second Sunday matinee performance of Mainstage shows, playgoers can enjoy a post-show talkback with the Hippodrome’s artistic team. These talkbacks give audience members a chance to ask actors, designers, directors and playwrights about the creative process and the unique opportunities and challenges presented by each Mainstage production. Season subscriptions that coincide with the Mainstage talkbacks are available.
To further explore the themes and issues raised in both our live productions and film, the Hippodrome offers post-show panel discussions to give audience members the opportunity to talk with experts on a variety of topics. Check the Hipp’s event calendar for these offerings.
