Play Readers of Denton will meet upstairs at the Campus Theatre at 7 pm on Tuesday, January 11, 2011, to read a play out loud. Last week, our group celebrated the new year by reading Noel Coward's Private Lives.
The next meeting of Playwrights of Denton will be January 18.
DCT Outreach Director Julie Brinker will be leading the Second Saturdays Seminar from 1-3 pm on January 8 at the Campus Theatre. The topic will be "Best Foot Forward: the Basics of Blocking and Stage Notation" and will cover what directors hope their actors already know (but so many don't!), including cheating out, easy rules for stage compositions and stances, and quick abbreviations for writing for noting stage blocking in scripts. The program is free, but we appreciation knowing that you're planning to attend, so that we can make enough handouts to go around. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 940 382-7014 x3 to reserve a spot.
DCT's competition production of Proof opens Friday, Jan. 14, at the Campus Theatre.

Tickets can be purchased through http://www.campustheatre.com/ or by stopping by or calling the box office (M-F 1-5): 940 382-1915.
