Page-to-Playhouse Book Club

Page-to-Playhouse Book Club

La Jolla Playhouse is Kick-Starting the Page-to-Playhouse Book Club!

We invite you to join the Page-To-Playhouse Book Club! Let’s explore specific plays in our season that began as books and transformed into a Playhouse production. Participants are encouraged to read the book, join the online Zoom book club meeting, and attend a live stage performance. Finally, join us closing night at the Page-To-Playhouse Book Club In-Person Meeting, where you will meet and greet special guests and receive an autographed gift poster.

Our book club purpose: share differing perspectives and opinions and engage in energetic conversations that not only challenge assumptions, but will expand our thinking.

Joining the Page-To-Playhouse Book Club is easy! Please contact Mel Bridges, Philanthropy Coordinator, at [email protected] or (858) 228-3085.
