Pre and Post Discussion

At selected events there will be pre or post discussions that will give the opportunity to create deeper understanding of the work and create connection with each other. Before or after selected Yucaipa Performing Arts Center performances there will be a free pre or post discussion that will take place to gain more of an understanding of certain works that will help us enjoy the work more. Through these interactive and engaging discussions audience members will gain a better understanding of the performance and engage in critical dialogue. These discussions are led by local and national scholars whom are masters in their field of knowledge.
