Play Readers of Denton will meet Oct. 23
Play Readers of Denton will meet Tuesday, Oct. 23, to read a play out loud. We're planning to read Ubu the King by Alfred Jarry.
Last week, Playwrights of Denton met to read and discuss Dan Creson's new one-act play, After. Because of the way the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays fall this year, the next meeting of Playwrights of Denton will be Jan. 15, 2013!
The Elephant Man runs through this weekend, and includes Play Readers Paul Miller, Johnny Williams, Kevin Wickersham, Jocelyn Allgood, Bryan Patrick, Dennis Welch, and Amber Bryant in the cast, with Sean Frith, Johnny Bryant, Rob Stadt, Susanne Coffey, Betty Kay Seibt, Brad Speck, Tom Stawicki, Johnny Bryant, and Mark Jadrych behind the scenes. What a representation from our group! Performances are Friday and Saturday at 7:30 pm and Sunday afternoon at 2. More info at www.dentoncommunitytheatre.com.
We're starting to receive submissions for the Method and Madness competition, so the Second Saturday Seminar on Nov. 10 (1-3 pm at the Campus Theatre) will be on Reading and Evaluating New Scripts. Potential adjudicators are encouraged to attend.
We have enough pledges for a Play Readers and Writers of Denton tile at the POINTBank Black Box! Julie has gone ahead and paid for a white ($100) tile. It won't be ready by the grand unveiling at Top Hats and Tiles Nov. 1-4, but there will be a place-holder to show it. If anyone else wants to contribute, we can continue working toward the next tile color level, at $250. If you haven't pledged yet but you'd be interested, email Julie at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell her your pledge amount.
