Grand Rapids Civic Theatre - HAIRSPRAY Talk Back




June 23rd – after the 7:30 performance

The Grand Rapids Civic Theatre and the Bob and Aleicia Woodrick Diversity Learning Center have partnered to offer two Talk Back opportunities immediately following the performances. A panel, led by Duane Davis and Mary Lou Smith, will discuss integration, acceptance and tolerance in the 1960’s and today.

These special Talk Back conversations offer panelists and the audience a chance to discuss the relevance of the play to contemporary social structures as well as their own personal experience, whether around earlier integration efforts related to theatre or the 1960’s.

Please join us, share your reactions to the show and be a part of the conversation!
