More Info About  Screenings

Register for a ticket and you will have access to view each filmed performance the entire weekend, starting at 7pm on Friday and ending at 11pm on Sunday. You can experience the show on your own schedule, any time you like, pausing as needed to refill the popcorn!

Closed captions created by 20% Theatre are available and recommended for all to use, as sometimes the film audio is not the greatest, and some performers are quieter than others.

The link to the screening will be in your confirmation email, and will not be turned on until 7pm the Friday specified. We will also provide a link to a PDF playbill so that you can follow along and learn titles of the pieces and the artists involved.

Our plays & events have been $5-$25 Sliding Scale for many years, and these screenings are no different. Tickets to view these works are pay-what-you-can/donation-based. Please contribute what you can for yourself and any household viewers joining you. We appreciate your support!

Don't have any funds? No problem. The screenings of all 5 past Naked I plays also have a free option if needed.

Questions? Reach out to us anytime at info@tctwentypercent.org.

This activity is made possible with a grant from the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council through the Minnesota Disaster Recovery Fund.
