Free Programming

This Summer, Take Advantage of Four Free Programs at the Hangar

Prologue Series, Tuesday Talkbacks, Wedge Performances & Late Night at the Hangar

Pre-show Prologue Series

In an effort to enhance your experience at the Hangar Theatre, the artistic staff is excited to share our prologue series, a pre-performance event tailored to provide audiences with additional dramaturgical information about each production of our mainstage season. In order to heighten audiences’ experience at the theatre and deepen their understanding of what they are about to watch unfold on the stage, members of the Hangar Drama League directing fellowship and the Hangar’s artistic staff will provide discussion on topics relating to each production in our season. Among these, topics might include performance styles, the body of work of a particular playwright, themes in a particular production, or social issues being addressed in the performance. Prologues will begin 45 minutes prior to each performance (except for Sunday matinees that are preceded by a Dramatic Dialogue) and will conclude 20 minutes before curtain. We offer this series free of charge to all ticket holders. We look forward to seeing you.

Tuesday Talkbacks

Our well attended Tuesday Talk-backs, which take place on Tuesdays during the run of each Mainstage production, invite audiences to stay after the show to hear the cast and creative team members give some inside information about the production.

Wedge Series

The Hangar offers free admission to Hangar patrons and all community members to its Wedge Series of cutting edge performances, which are directed by Hangar Drama League directing fellows and feature members of the Lab Company. These shows take place at the Cherry Artspace, 102 Cherry St, Ithaca, NY. The Hangar Drama League directors get to select their Wedge titles and performances are on Thursday and Friday evenings throughout June and July.

No reservations necessary! Please plan to arrive in enough to time to secure your seat. Run times vary per production but will be no longer than 60 minutes.

Late Night at the Hangar

New in 2017, Late Night at the Hangar is a free cabaret showcasing the Hangar Theatre Lab Company and directed by the Hangar Drama League Directing Fellows.  Immediately following select Saturday evening shows, please join us in the tent in front of the theatre connected to the lobby to hear classics and modern hits of the American musical theatre.
