Free and open to the public; tickets to the show are encouraged but not required​

About Saturday Community Show Talks:

Our Saturday Community Show Talks offer 5th Avenue's community partners an opportunity to educate our patrons on the amazing work they accomplish. Linking a production on our stage to a message from our partners offers our patrons an opportunity to learn about the diverse communities that surround us, become more educated about the history and issues, and celebrate the incredible work of our partners.

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