For many arts lovers, watching a play or dance performance as an audience member means quietly observing until the end of the show when you politely applaud the artists. The Walton Arts Center is looking to expand on that experience by giving people more opportunities to engage with what they see on stage. In the coming weeks, the arts center is launching two new programs: Arts and Appetizers and the Broadway Book Club.
