Play Readers Jan. 27?
Jessica has volunteered to facilitate Play Readers on Jan. 27 if more than 3 people commit to attending, since Julie needs to rehearse the contest show that night. So please email firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday to RSVP!
Speaking of the contest show, DCT will be taking A Need for Less Expertise, which was the second act of the Black Box production last August of Murray Schisgal's Twice Around the Park, at the AACTFest Quad Competition next weekend. The director is Play Reader Dennis Welch, and it features Play Readers Julie Brinker and Damon Wadyko. If you'd like to come down to Lewisville to support us, the competition will be held at the MCL (Medical Center of Lewisville) Grand Theatre, 100 N. Charles St. in Lewisville (take the Main Street exit and head towards downtown; The MCL Grand is on the left just before you get to downtown) on Saturday, Jan. 31. Four companies will be participating; two in the afternoon and two in the evening. Tickets are $15 for a block of 2 shows, or $10 for a single performance. DCT will be performing in the second half of the afternoon block, which begins at 1:30 pm (so around 3 pm). Here is the schedule for the competition:

There will be approximately 30 minutes break between performances - ten minutes for strike, eight minutes critique, ten minutes set up for the next production. If set up and strike take less time, the show block schedule will move up accordingly.
