Included FREE with your ticket
One hour prior to every subscription series performance, a member of the cast leads a 30-minute discussion with a peek into the play-making process and other details to enhance your playgoing experience. Each Prologue concludes with a Q&A with the audience. There are no Prologues for A Christmas Carol or An Iliad.
Prologue speakers for The Song of Summer:
For the first week of the run:
Orlando Hernández is an interim community engagement coordinator at Trinity Rep. He is known for his work on stage – and off – last being seen in Trinity Rep’s A Christmas Carol in 2017.
Tina Chilip ’06 is a graduate of the Brown/Trinity MFA program. She will be playing Tina in the world-premiere production of The Song of Summer. During the Prologue, she will discuss the process of developing a new play and her role, as an actor, in that process.
New! Prologue Dinners
Prologue attendees can pre-order dinner from Bravo and have it delivered to the theater to enjoy between the Prologue and performance. See the menu here. Order forms can be printed in advance and brought to the theater and will also be available when you arrive. Orders must be placed with the Trinity Rep staff no later than 10 minutes prior to the start of the Prologue (1 hour, 10 minutes prior to the performance start time) and are credit card-only at this time. Please plan to arrive early enough to place your order. All orders must be placed through Trinity Rep. Please do not call Bravo directly.
Please note: The dinner is not available for Wednesday matinee performances.
Also note that patrons will have 30 minutes between the conclusion of the Prologue and the start of the show to eat and that Trinity Rep is unable to save uneaten food or delay the start of the show.
Prologues are sponsored by WGBH
