A Maples Rep tradition! We celebrate each show’s opening with special flair. Join us in the lobby after the first Friday evening performance of each show for a party with food, drink and decorations themed according to the show. After the food is served, the Maples Rep company takes the stage for an informal set of music, banter and fun. Afterglow is FREE to all patrons (whether you have tickets to that particular performance or not), so come out and party with us! If you would like to contribute to the cost of the event, donations are accepted and appreciated.
