Playwrights will NOT meet Sept. 18

Playwrights of Denton is on hiatus for one more month, and will not meet Sept. 18; the next meeting will be Oct. 16 at 7 pm at the Campus Theatre.

Play Readers of Denton will next meet Tuesday, Sept. 24 at 7 pm to read a play out loud. We're planning to read Tennessee Williams' A Streetcar Named Desire. Last week, we read Federico Garcia Lorca's The House of Bernarda Alba

The next Second Saturdays Seminar will be Oct. 13 from 1-3 pm at the Campus Theatre.  Julie Brinker, DCT Outreach Director, will lead a workshop on Reading and Evaluating New Scripts. Ms. Brinker, who recently adapted and directed DCT's production of Macbeth, also teaches as an adjunct at North Central Texas College and Texas Woman's University. She holds an MFA in Theatre and is national-award-winning playwright of Rachel's Night, a play for family audiences. She is coordinating the adjudication process of DCT's Method and Madness Playwriting Competition and Festival; participants from this workshop will be trained to adjudicate scripts for the competition, if they wish.

Pygmalion opens this weekend and runs through Sept. 23. Come to London with us in the timeless tale of Cockney flower-seller Eliza Doolittle, who is transformed into a perfect lady by Professor Henry Higgins and his sidekick, Colonel Pickering. Play Readers Buster Maloney, Johnny Williams, Mark Jadrych, John Evarts, Amber Bryant, Julie Brinker, Susanne Coffey, Damon Wadyko, Elsie Barrow, Jessica Phillips, Pete Kelly, and Betsy Deiterman are all involved onstage or offstage, under the able direction of Play Reader Dennis Welch. Proof positive that Play Readers ROCK!
