Play Readers will meet Oct. 5

Play Readers of Denton will meet Tuesday, Oct. 5, starting at 7 pm upstairs at the Campus Theatre, to read a play out loud. Last week, the group read August Strindberg's Miss Julie.

The next meeting of Playwrights of Denton will be Oct. 19.

This just in! Local theatre legend Bill Kirkley will be leading a workshop on Improvisation for the Second Saturdays Seminar on Oct. 9 from 1-3 pm at the Campus Theatre. Reservations are required for this free workshop. Mr. Kirkley most recently directed The Producers and Don't Dress for Dinner for Denton Community Theatre, and Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Company, and I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change, for Music Theatre of Denton. He last performed in DCT's The Complete Works of Wm. Shakespeare, Abridged, and is also a published playwright.

Improvisation, or performing spontaneously, is considered to be a crucial aspect of performer training today, working on basic skills like listening, concentration, confidence, and performing instinctively and spontaneously. Through exercises and games, performers learn to act and react in the moment, deepening their ability to behave believably in imaginary circumstances on stage or screen.

Space in the workshop is limited. Call 940 382-7014 x3 or email as soon as possible to reserve a spot.

And, last but not least, MTD's Funny Girl opens Oct. 9!
