Beyond the Stage: Explore The Winter's Tale


Location: Patricia George Decio Theatre, DeBartolo Performing Arts Center

Tour behind-the-scenes to see how the magic is made, and meet the team making it happen!

This hour-long event begins in the Patricia George Decio Theatre to meet the director of The Winter’s Tale, Drew Fracher, in conversation with actor Wendy Robie. Fracher has worked throughout the Midwest’s most prominent regional theaters and on Broadway. Robie is perhaps best known as Nadine (with her eye patch) in David Lynch’s Twin Peaks. This summer, she takes on the role of Paulina in The Winter’s Tale.

Guests will then head backstage to see the set, visit the costume shop, and learn about the creative process directly from the Festival’s designers and production staff.

The evening concludes in the actors’ Green Room for a Q&A with the Festival’s Ryan Producing Artistic Director Grant Mudge.

One evening only!

Three identical tours will begin 30 minutes apart at 6:00pm, 6:30pm, and 7:00pm on Wednesday, August 5.

Sponsored by the Notre Dame Shakespeare Festival.
