IllumiNation Series

Asolo Repertory Theatre’s IllumiNation is a series of performances and events promoting cross-cultural conversations in the community.

Held during select Wednesday and Saturday performances throughout the 2019-20 season, IllumiNation events begin one hour prior to curtain with a reception on the mezzanine, continue with the performance, and conclude with a community conversation where audience members can further explore the social issues that they have just seen played out on stage.

Asolo Rep’s 2019-20 series will feature four plays that examine issues of race, gender, identity and cultural intersection. This series is held on these performance dates:

The Sound of Music | November 23, 2pm
The Lifespan of a Fact | January 28, 7:30pm
Into the Breeches!| March 14, 2pm
The Great Leap | April 1, 7:30pm

The series aims to engage audiences that reflect the Sarasota and Bradenton communities as a whole, and to promote open cross-cultural conversations. In order to effectively reach these audiences, Asolo Rep is working closely with an IllumiNation Advisory Committee, comprised of community pillars who are committed to broadening the diversity of the theatre.
