Community Cue: Conversations Inspired by the Stage

This series of free events, open to the general public, welcomes the community to explore a theme or topic inspired by an upcoming show. Community Cues elicit impactful conversation from attendees around these themes, with moderated events featuring local experts, teaching artists or members of the featured production's cast, crew or creative team. Community Cues take place at community sites around the Charlotte region, as well as at Blumenthal Arts venues.
