Yale Peabody Museum curators, collections managers and special guests will feature a few remarkable objects from their collections in a 20-minute presentation, followed by Q&A. As they continue to celebrate their 150th anniversary, find out how these objects fit into the long history of the Peabody Museum as a source of knowledge and understanding about the Earth and its cultures, and why their resident experts are so excited to talk about them! Refreshments will be served; ask at the front desk for specific location.

AMAZING GRACE @ Shubert Theater
Jan 21 @ 1:00 pm

AMAZING GRACE

This sweeping musical – centering on the life of John Newton, the hymn’s 18th-century author – tells the inspiring story of how the beloved song came to be. This captivating tale of romance, rebellion and moral redemption traces Newton’s gradual awakening that led to his conversion from slave-trader to abolitionist-pastor.

See this new production of AMAZING GRACE at the Shubert before it begins its national tour!

 Spring Semester 2018 | Behind-the-Scenes Collections Tours

(during the first and third Tuesday of each month)

 

From Anthropology to Zoology, the 13 million objects and specimens in the Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History’s collections represent a world-class record of the history of Earth and its cultures. Yet less than a tenth of one percent is on display in the public galleries! In continuing celebration of their 150th anniversary, the Yale Peabody Museum will be offering free behind-the-scenes tours on the first and third Tuesdays of each month. In this tour led by Yale students, you’ll visit two different curatorial divisions, learn how the collections are stored and organized, and glimpse some hidden treasures that rarely see the light of day.

 

Tours are by registration ONLY & limited to 24 people.

 

Children must be 12 years of age or older to participate.

Spring 2018 Collections Tour Schedule:

Field Guide at The Yale Repertory Theatre @ Yale Repertory Theatre
Jan 26 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Field Guide

With breakneck speed and endless invention, Field Guide skates through one of the greatest—and longest!—novels ever written: The Brothers Karamazov. Rude Mechs literally (well, not literally) rips pages out of Dostoevsky’s powerful meditation on faith, meaning, and morality and mischievously replaces them with stand-up comedy, pop music dance numbers, a cardboard bear, and a talking bird.
