Play Readers will meet December 1

Play Readers will meet Tuesday, December 1, upstairs from 7-9(ish) upstairs at the Campus Theatre. Last week, a small group read Sam Shepard's God of Hell.

The next meeting of Playwrights of Denton will be December 15.

Please note that Play Readers will NOT meet while the Campus Theatre is closed for the holidays on December 22 and 29.

Everyone interested in how to get effective publicity for your event should try to get to the Second Saturdays Seminar on Dec. 12 here at the Campus Theatre! Lucinda Breeding, Denton Record-Chronicle Features Editor, will be speaking from 1-3 pm on "Media Whack-a-Mole," including the basics of putting together an electronic press kit. Please let me know if you're planning to attend by emailing so I can make sure we have enough handouts for this fabulous workshop!

And don't forget that A Tuna Christmas opens December 11--tickets are going fast!

Hope to see you around the Campus--

Play Readers will meet Nov. 24

Play Readers will meet upstairs at the Campus Theatre on Tuesday, Nov. 24, from 7-9(ish) pm to read a play out loud. Last week Play Writers met to read Dan Cresom's new play, Criminal Behavior, before he sends it off to competition. Break a pen, Dan!

This is the last weekend for Forever Plaid, and if you haven't seen it yet, you're in for a real treat. Congratulations, Jocelyn, on your part in a great show!

Thanks for visiting the new blog--please let us know what you think!

Play WRITERS will meet Nov. 17

Welcome to the Play Readers/Writers of Denton blog!

We need READERS for the Playwrights of Denton meeting on Nov. 17.

Playwrights of Denton will meet upstairs at the Campus Theatre from 7-9(ish) pm to support local playwrights and their efforts. And this week, we have a full script by member Dan Creson. He would like to hear it read out loud before he sends it off to a competition. We need 3 women and 5 men, if possible, so that Dan can really hear it with enough different voices.

Last week, we had a small but highly philosophical group at Play Readers, and got started on the topic of the influence of the subconscious/unconscious on creativity. We ended up with an evening that was completely different for us, in which we watched the DVD of Allegro Non Troppo (an Italian spoof on Fantasia) instead of actually reading a play! We'll get back to our regular agenda on Nov. 24.
