These are Tricentennial pieces at the Witte Museum, San Antonio, for 2018.
Gallery Theater exists with the specific purpose of furthering the educational mission of the institution. Most productions are between 12-15 minutes long. Gallery Theater actors perform in and rehearse several shows at a time, and present shows 2-4 times a day and are compensated at $10/hr. Monologues are the most common format. Actors may also perform demonstrations and other kinds of presentations. Actors are in close contact with their audiences, addressing, interacting with, and visiting with them after the performance. Actors often conduct post-show conversations and are expected to be knowledgeable not only about the content of the museum theater piece, but of the exhibit it enhances.
