Introducing Studio Roanoke's newest
The Workshop Reading Series
Roanoke offers area playwrights and intrepid audiences a new way to be
involved in the exciting process of new play development. Building on the
success of our Lunchbox Series, we'll be presenting well-rehearsed,
script-in-hand readings of full-length plays at various stages of development.
Some will be production-ready offerings that we're considering for upcoming
seasons; others will be near-final drafts of scripts that playwrights need to
hear aloud before they make the next set of revisions. Moderated talkbacks
with the audience and creative staff will be held immediately following each
reading, allowing audiences to share their reactions and providing playwrights
with a forum to ask questions and get valuable input from the community about
how effectively their work is achieving its aesthetic goals. The Workshop
Reading Series combines the multiple components of Studio Roanoke's mission
statement, providing cutting-edge theatrical experiences, educational
programming, and community involvement.
Workshop Readings are presented at 8 p.m. sharp on the fourth
Sundays of alternate (odd-numbered) months, i.e.. January, March, May, and July.
Admission to these engaging, entertaining, thought-provoking, interactive
experiences in theatre-making is only $5, and no advanced reservations are
required. We invite you to become a part of the conversation and play a
valuable role in turning good ideas into great theatre.
