Behind the Curtain
Pinterest Hidden Image

Join director Colton Pometta and star Miles Mykkanen for a working rehearsal of the deliciously witty Buyer & Cellar, a one-man play by Jonathan Tolins about Alex, an out-of-work, aspiring actor hired for a mysterious job at the home of the legendary Barbra Streisand. As he begins his job, Alex falls deeper into the rabbit hole of fame and celebrity when he meets and befriends the great lady herself. 

This insiders’ peek of Emberlight’s first theatrical production will reveal how theater artists work while offering a preview of the whimsical tour-de-force, which Entertainment Weekly called, “Hilarious! Beyond brilliant.” The rehearsal will be followed by a lively question-and-answer session with Colton and Miles. It’s sure to whet your appetite for the full performance, which will run July 14 – 22.


This event is free!  In fact, over 60% of our events are totally free for anyone to attend.  We believe that art should be accessible and affordable to everyone, which is why the majority of our season doesn’t require tickets and the average ticket price in our 2023 season is only $16.  This is possible because of generous gifts from our sponsors and donations from our amazing community.
