Fresh Eyes

Artists Rep’s Fresh Eyes program brings ‘civilians’ into the rehearsal process. On selected productions each season, we invite 2-4 volunteers from diverse backgrounds to join us for four rehearsals, and then to share their observations in the Fresh Eyes blog. No special knowledge or experience is required of these volunteers – just a bit of time and curiosity. We hope the new perspectives of our guests will illuminate the inner workings of a production for our audiences and community at large, while also helping us learn about the challenges and obstacles a production may present to audiences.

In the 2018/19 season, our volunteers will share their experiences in Everybody, A Doll's House, Part 2 and Wolf PlayFollow along as a production develops from the first reading and design presentations, through scene work, staging and technical rehearsals and first preview – and see it through Fresh Eyes!

If you are interested in being a part of Fresh Eyes, please email Luan Schooler: lschooler (at) artistsrep (dot) org.
