Before most performances, CSF offers a free preshow talk given by the Producing Artistic Director or another CSF staff expert. This is an informal talk about the play that will be performed and may include information on the playwright, historical and contextual background, and an introduction to the characters, plot, themes and more. The preshow talks have become a beloved tradition at CSF. Come late, come early—we promise an entertaining and enlightening talk. Prologues will be held in the theatre where the performance will take place unless otherwise posted.

We invite you to watch, listen and gather with us online right now. Each week we will bring you curated creations from the artists you’d see in any other CU Presents season, in the comfort of your own home.
