Night School
November 05, 2011
Theater Terrace Lobby


If a YBCA performance is dinner, then Night School is the appetizer and the dessert. Night School, a first-of-its-kind program, is part workshop, part dinner date, and part backstage sneak peek. For a small addition to the regular ticket price, you can immerse yourself in a range of dynamic activities, including:

  • Pre-show hands-on workshop with guest speakers and exclusive insights
  • Gourmet dinner specially paired with the evening's performance
  • Post-show conversation with snacks and a cash bar

Because space for this event is extremely limited, tickets for Night School are not available online. Please call the YBCA box office at 415-978-ARTS (2787).

Unless otherwise noted, Night School will meet in the Grand Lobby with workshops and dinner taking place in the Theater Terrace Lobby of the Novellus Theater.
