Backstage productions are selected especially for presentation in the intimacy of the backstage theatre setting. Playgoers are seated on stage where the action is, near enough to hear every word, every sigh, to see every comical expression and gesture, and to feel part of every scene. The staging and seating arrangements change with every Backstage show.
The Backstage at CPAC seats are general admission:
$15 for adults
$12 for seniors
$10 for students

THE STORY: Three days before his bid for reelection, in the wake of a school shooting in his hometown of Raleigh, North Carolina, a Republican U.S. senator makes an off-the-cuff comment to a blogger that gets leaked on “the Twitter,” calling into question the senator’s stance on guns and God. As his devoutly Christian wife and liberal Jewish campaign manager try to contain the damage, this look at how religion influences politics and how politics has become a religion is simultaneously funny, heartbreaking, and uplifting.
