Christmas in the Airwaves is one of our productions this season that is a part of the Page & Stage partnership with the Anoka County Library. Participants receive a copy of the script and specially-prepared audience guide, attend a pre-show group discussion led by Lyric Arts staff and guest artists, see the play, and then attend a post-show talkback with the cast and crew.
We've got select spots set aside for brand-new participants and we're taking reservation requests until opening night this Friday, November 20th. Click here to request a spot or to find out more about this program provided completely free of cost, thanks to the Legacy Amendment and Lyric Arts’ partnership with the Anoka County Library.
The Library provides a special resource page for each Page & Stage audience guide. Here are just a few of their suggestions for ways that you can enrich your experience with Christmas in the Airwaves with a visit to your local library...
