How many of you have been to see a show at Pacific Theatre and then spent the rest of your evening chatting/discussing/debating with your theatre-going companion about what you just saw?
Now we’re inviting you to make it a little more formal and create your very own…
Pacific Theatre Club!
The basic format is easy as pie: gather a group of friends, see a play, then get together and discuss it.
What You Get Out of It
Besides a deeper understanding and engagement with our plays and a fun night out with your friends, we’ve got a few little bonuses for you theatre clubbers:
- An insider’s discussion guide, published and posted on this page by the preview performance of every show full of background information and discussion questions to help get your conversation flowing
- Exclusive meet and greets with artists and staff: if you let us know about your theatre club, one time a year we will arrange for an artist or staff member from Pacific Theatre to join your group’s discussion, providing a new level of insight into the work and giving us an opportunity to get to know you a little better!
How to Get Started
- Get a group of 10 or more and come see a show together – you’ll all save 15% and then you can visit one of the great restaurants on South Granville for coffee and dessert to chat about the play afterwards.
- Can’t get everyone out on the same night? Set a date after the show closes to gather at your home or favourite restaurant to discuss the play, and then everyone can see it in their own time.
- Is cost an issue? All of our mainstage shows have pay-what-you-can previews on the Thursday before opening, or volunteer to usher one night and see the show for free!
- Buy a subscription as a group and attend our Subscriber Appreciation Saturdays. These free events take place the first Saturday of each show’s run and offer extra insights into each show, really getting you ready for your theatre club debates.
If you’re looking to start a theatre club, contact our Audience Engagement Manager Kaitlin Williams at email@example.com for extra info and additional incentives. Letting Kaitlin know you’re starting your own club means she can offer you support, ideas and insider tips.
