Last call for Playwrights of Denton on Feb. 17

The next meeting of Playwrights of Denton is scheduled for Feb. 17. Please email by Monday, Feb. 16 at noon that you'll be bringing something to read and/or talk about, or we'll cancel this month's meeting.

Congratulations to the all-Play Readers cast and crew of A Need for Less Expertise, which competed in the AACT/TNT QuadFest last weekend and advanced to the state competition (mid-March in Lewisville again). You can see it for yourself at a fundraising performance Feb. 14 at 8 pm--tickets will be $10!

Play Readers of Denton will meet Tuesday, Feb. 24, at 7 pm to read a play out loud.  Last week, we read and adjudicated a submission for the Method and Madness New Plays competition and read Sarah Treem's A Feminine Ending in anticipation of this weekend's auditions.

Those auditions will be held at the DCT POINTBank Black Box on Saturday, Feb. 14, and Sunday, Feb. 15 from 2-5 pm. The Black Box is located at 318 E. Hickory. If needed, callbacks will be held Monday, Feb. 16 at 7:30 pm at the Campus Theatre. The show is directed by Play Reader Mandy Rausch.
