The tour of the Asolo Repertory Theatre will begin with the international story of the company and historic Mertz Theatre. Guests will be taken on-stage and back-stage for an in-depth look at what it takes to produce world-class theatre. Guests will see behind the-scene spaces for the two theatres used by the Asolo Rep: the Mertz, and the Cook. As well as the Asolo Rep’s costume shop—where Costume Shop Manager, David Covach, takes guests through the ins and outs of creating a costume. After the tour we will have boxed lunches on the mezzanine followed by a performance of the musical Ragtime.
