Pre-Performance Discussions are offered on select evenings on the Old Farmhouse Lawn. These discussions offer insight and interpretation of the evening's performance. They begin 1 hour before the scheduled show time and end with plenty of time to reach your seat before the show starts.

The Old Farmhouse Lawn is located to the left of the main gate/Box Office area for the Filene Center. Chairs are provided, or you may bring a blanket and enjoy your picnic during the presentation. For additional information, visit the
National Park Service websiteemail the National Park Service, or call 703.255.1824.
