CURTAIN UP! THE 5TH AVENUE’S COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT PROGRAMS

The 5th Avenue Theatre supports a vibrant and diverse community throughout the greater Puget Sound area by providing a place for individuals to meet, gather and engage with American musical theater and celebrate its capacity to explore and reflect upon the human experience.

Within this mission we endeavor to:

  • Celebrate America’s great indigenous art form, the Musical.
  • Educate our community about the impact musical theater has had on world culture.
  • Increase access to The 5th Avenue Theatre and reach new audiences.
  • Encourage participation in the Arts.
 

SHOW TALKS WITH ALBERT EVANS

The 5th Avenue Theatre Artistic Associate Albert Evans hosts a special series of delightful and insightful presentations which will take place one hour before every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday performance. These presentations inform and enhance the theater-going experience with background, context and history of the musicals audiences see. Free and open to the public; tickets to the show are encouraged but not required​

Show Talks take place in Studio E at DAT 5. For Directions: Click Here
