Panel Discussions


Each season, Hattiloo carefully selects plays and musicals to make us laugh, cry, dance in our seats, think about our neighbors, celebrate our history, and reflect on the world around us. Just as in real life, every story is important. And every play that hits the Hattiloo stage is an opportunity to get the community engaged in subjects that are meaningful in one way or another.

For each play in the season, Hattiloo assembles some of the brightest minds to share their perspectives on subjects related to each play’s themes and relevant social issues. Panel discussions are free and open to the public.
