Theatre Under the Stars

The TUTS Spotlight Series began in 2018 as a free event that takes you behind the scenes of our productions. These free, public discussions provide unique opportunities to meet, and hear from, the cast and creative teams.

Facing the challenges presented by COVID-19, TUTS has initiated a virtual path to connect with our community, while continuing the tradition of allowing our audience a sneak peak at the magic being made behind-the-curtain.

Following the same vein as the Spotlight Series, we’re pleased to announce the TUTS Spotlight Webcast and the TUTS Spotlight Podcast.
