Play Readers won't meet while the Campus Theatre is closed for the holidays Dec. 19-Jan. 2, so our next meeting will be Tuesday, Jan. 3, 2012, at 7 pm at the Campus Theatre. For our combined Play Readers and Writers celebration this past Tuesday night, we had a fabulous feast and read The Lion in Winter.
The next meeting of Playwrights of Denton will be January 17, 2012. The deadline for the Method and Madness Playwriting Competition is January 14, so get those scripts in! The first prize is $2000--more info at http://www.dentoncommunitytheatre.com/PlaywritingCompetitionMainPage.htm.
If you're more interested in adjudicating scripts for the competition than in submitting one, the Second Saturdays Seminar on January 14 (1-3 pm at the Campus Theatre) will be a workshop on reading and evaluating scripts. Call 940 382-7014 x3 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more info or to reserve a space.
Congratulations to Play Readers Dennis Welch, Damon Wadyko, Johnny Bryant, Brian Patrick, and Pat Watson, who have all been cast in DCT's Mainstage production of Neil Simon's Laughter on the 23rd Floor! The show runs Jan. 27-Feb. 5.
Christmas Belles continues this weekend, with Play Readers Jo Cassell, Susanne Coffey, and Amber Bryant--it's a great way to get in a festive spirit, if you aren't there already.
Hope to see you in the New Year--Merry Everything to everybody!
