Dear garden members we have a fun theater event coming soon that you will want to put on your calendars and possibly participate in!
On Sunday July 16th and Sunday August 13th, from 3 to 5 pm our garden’s Special Events committee will be presenting staged readings of 5 theater pieces.
The scripts are all written by current or former members of the Harlem Dramatic Writing Lab at Columbia University. The scripts vary in theme: from mother nature to the poker table, and in style from the absurdist to the romantic. And the scripts vary in length from 4 to 19 pages (some pieces are excerpts.)
Audience members will be given response sheets to complete, and their top choice of the excerpts will decide which play or screenplay will be read in full on August 13th.
Casting is non-traditional. We are looking for: Professional Theater Garden Members!!!
Actors are asked to attend one rehearsal, and will be paid subway/bus transportation for both that day and the day of the first performance. The garden is not allowed to charge admission, but the “Suggested Donation of $10 or more” will be divided equally among the actors.
Garden members who’d like to be readers should contact Special Events committee member Joyce Griffen email: firstname.lastname@example.org asap.
