Have you thought that your story or memoir would make a great play? The Seattle Playwrights Salon has been providing opportunities for staged readings–something of a prerequisite to have a play performed or published–and is adding even more educational tracks for those not quite ready for performance.
The 2020 playwright study group starts up January 13. The monthly drop-in group will be held on the second Mondays of the month at The Palace Theatre and Art Bar, 5813 Airport Way South, Seattle 98108 (Georgetown) from 5:30-7 p.m. The January meet-up will be a combo: a writing exercise, followed by selecting topics for the next six months. Group members are encouraged to lead a monthly meeting and prepare the topic.
Their first free performance of the year will be “Olive and Camila” by Robin Brooks. Directed by Sarah Butts and featuring local actresses Jayne Muirhead and Ana Maria Compoy, this staged reading will be performed at The Palace Theatre & Art Bar, January 23, at 7:00 p.m.
