Here is your one stop destination for all of the events that happen outside The Playhouse. Info on special appearances, lectures, Play Club, Library Monologues and other community outreach events can be found here.


For the fourth year in a row, Dane County Public Libraries will host play club meetings in conjunction with a Forward Theater show. It's fun and easy to take part: just sign up at a participating library to attend the meeting, check out a script and study guide at the participating library when they arrive, and then head to your library for the discussion. The conversation will be led by a Forward Theater Company artist, and scenes from the play will be read aloud by Forward Theater actors.

Dates and times for the Play Clubs are listed below. And if you would like your branch of the public library to host one of these events, please let them (and us) know!

Artistic Associate Karen Moeller - From Page to Stage

Forward Theater Play Clubs in the Library are a part of the From Page to Stage program, which is possible thanks to Beyond the Page, Madison Community Foundation, Dane Arts Commission and the National Endowment for the Humanities.
