Because May 31 will be the 5th Tuesday of the month, Play Readers will be taking a break that night. We will next meet to read a play on Tuesday, June 7, starting at 7 pm, at the Campus Theatre. Last night, we read John Lee's The Last Resort, which was exciting in and of itself--but the evening will be unforgettable for those of us who were here for two other reasons: the surprise visit by former Play Reader Helen Exel, visiting from New Jersey; and the tornado sirens that precipitated a move into the ladies' rest room downstairs, where we felt safe and cozy (and acoustically enhanced) for the rest of the reading.
Play Readers/Writers automatically cancels when Denton is included in a tornado or flash flood (when downtown floods, the Campus can be impossible to reach or leave) warnings, but in cases of weather watches, we press on, just as we did last night.
The next meeting of Playwrights of Denton will be June 21.
Congratulations to Play Readers Rachel Tillman and Wes Porter, who have been cast in DCT's August production of Bye Bye Birdie. Break a leg!
Tickets are on sale for DCT's upcoming productions of Daughters of the Lone Star State (June 10-19) and Red White and Tuna (June 24-July 3). More info at http://www.dentoncommunitytheatre.com/events_shows.php
The Campus Theatre will be closed Monday, May 30, in observance of Memorial Day.
Hope to see you at the Campus soon!
