Great audiences are engaged

As a not-for-profit organization that is part of Michigan State University’s Department of Outreach and Engagement, Wharton Center believes in lifelong learning and engagement between the audience and the artist. To support that interaction, we are proud to introduce to you our Engagement Initiatives.


Insight Previews

Insight Previews are informative talks presented by topic experts who provide unique insights into the performances. Insight Previews are free and occur 45 minutes prior to selected performances.

After Chats

After Chats are free post-performance conversations with members of the touring company. Following the curtain call, audience members who wish to remain for the After Chat will be invited to come sit close to the stage. This informal question and answer session will be moderated by a member of Wharton Center’s staff.
