ABOUT THE CLUB
The AE Book Club members will read Alice Walker’s timeless masterpiece The Color Purple before meeting at the theatre twice in June to discuss the book, its themes and how it was transferred to the stage.
THE DETAILS: TWO MEETINGS
On Sunday, June 10, club members will gather at 4:30 PM to discuss the book over catered wine and light bites. After the discussion, club members will be invited backstage for a sneak peek of how the show is coming together. On Sunday, June 17, members will return at 2 PM to watch the musical together and stay after to discuss how the book translated to the stage. Wine and finger foods will be provided for this discussion.
The whole package is just $100. That includes the two catered events, a ticket to the show and great conversation. Subscribers can upgrade to this package for just $60, simply call or e-mail the box office.
