WHAT IS A STAGED READING?
A staged Reading is the step in between writing a play and having it fully produced. Actors read the play aloud in front of an audience in order for the playwright to gauge the effectiveness of the dialogue, pacing and flow, and other dramatic elements that he or she may wish to adjust before the expense and far-reach of a fully produced production. It is a crucial stage of development for a new play and the audience's response and feedback contribute to the rewrites.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
Admission to our Staged Readings is only a $5 suggested donation which helps contribute to the expense of producing the reading. Your donation covers the cost of admission only.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The Function Hall is available starting at 7:00 PM for you to sit down, order food or drinks, and mingle with your party as well as our actors and staff! The Reading will begin at 7:30 PM and end between 8:30 and 8:45 PM, followed by an informal Talk-Back with the Director, Playwright, and Actors regarding the play you just heard. An exciting and informal "behind-the-scenes" look at the creation of a play from multiple perspectives!
HOW DO I SIGN UP?
Though not required, we highly recommend reservations since the Function Hall has limited seating.
