ASOLO REPERTORY THEATRE

Box Office: 941.351.8000 / 800.361.8388

 

Asolo Repertory Theatre’s IllumiNation is a series of performances and events promoting cross-cultural conversations in the community. Held during select Wednesday and Saturday performances throughout the 2017-18 season, IllumiNation events begin one hour prior to curtain with a reception on the mezzanine, continue with the performance, and conclude with a moderated panel discussion where audience members can further explore the topical and social issues that they have just seen played out on stage.

The series aims to engage audiences that reflect not only the dynamic and diverse characters on stage but also the Sarasota and Bradenton communities as a whole and to promote open cross-cultural conversations. Many of Asolo Rep's 2017-18 season productions focus on topics that have a direct impact on the African-American and Latino communities and feature an infusion of actors and characters of diverse ethnicities. In order to effectively reach these audiences, Asolo Rep is working closely with an IllumiNation Advisory Committee, comprised of community pillars who are committed to broadening the diversity of the theatre.
