This series is focused on providing artistically fulfilling experiences for individuals who love participating in theatre, but may not have time to dedicate to full community productions. Each play reading session will consist of a reading of a full play with breaks between acts for discussion and refreshments, as well as a host facilitated discussion post-reading. Texts will be chosen based on registrant interest from classical to contemporary. Please note: This class is for ages 18+.About the teacher:
