Explore. Experience. Engage.

The E3! program begins as our experts and advisors elevate the level of appreciation for a performance with a pre-show discussion.  You can enhance your understanding of a piece - no matter how familiar or foreign to you.  This Explore phase plants seeds of understanding that take root during the Experience of the performance itself.

After the performance, you and other E3! participants gather for a reception and Engage in conversation about what you've just seen.  And you never know who might drop by... many times artists attend just to thank and chat with members of the audience! 

The Touhill brings you inside the performance like no other venue.

Pre-show discussions generally begin 50 minutes prior to the performance start time. 

The E3! pre-show discussion and post-show reception are free with the price of a ticket to the performance.  

E3! is free to patrons, thanks to the support of Friends of the Touhill.

Following is a calendar of E3! performances.
