All of which got me thinking. I'm betting there are other people out there that would be interested in seeing how a show grows. I wonder whether a package deal could be put together that could further engage audiences--especially those audiences whose only theatrical participation is as an audience member.
The package deal I was thinking of would look something like:
- A ticket to attend the show's read-through at the beginning of the rehearsal process. Ideally the read-through would include presentations by the technical staff on the show concept.
- A ticket to opening night.
- A ticket to closing night.
- A roundtable with the actors and director following closing night where people could discuss how things changed from start to finish and why.
