Play Readers of Denton will meet Tuesday, January 24, 2012, at 7 pm at the Campus Theatre (214 W. Hickory, Denton) to read a play or two out loud. For the next few weeks, Play Readers will be reading entries in the DCT Method and Madness Playwriting competition, so readers (and adjudicators) are in great demand!
Playwrights of Denton met last Tuesday, but since so many of our playwrights had just submitted for the competition, turnout was sparse. Playwrights of Denton will next meet Feb. 21 at 7 pm at the Campus Theatre.
The Second Saturdays Seminars on Feb. 11 and Mar. 10 (from 1-3 at the Campus Theatre) will be devoted to reading and adjudicating plays for the Method and Madness competition. At the Second Saturdays Seminar this past week, we had so much fun reading two plays out loud and then individually filling out evaluation forms that we decided to try it again (note: we don't and won't read plays by local playwrights at these public events).
