Seeking Directors for Next Stage Reading Series

The New Play Development Group (NPD) of the Alumnae Theatre seek directors for Season Two of the NEXT STAGE READING SERIES. The Next Stage Reading Series aids in the development of works-in-progress with "semi-cold" lobby readings of new scripts. All members and non-members welcome to attend! All ACTIVE members welcome to participate as directors!
 
Readings will be hosted in the Alumnae Lobby on:
September 18, October 2, November 6, December 11, 2017
January 8, February 5, April 2, June 18, 2018

Did you apply last year? You're still on the list!
Want to be on the list? Contact BOTH Anne Tait anne@annetaitproductions.com and Carol Libman libmancarol@rogers.com, and be ready to supply your resume.

As this is an Alumnae initiative for playwrights, actors and directors, all roles - regardless of gender - are played by women.  
Actors and directors are chosen from Alumnae members, and therefore male roles are read by females.

PLEASE NOTE: YOU MUST BE AN ACTIVE, LIFE OR SENIOR SUPPORTING MEMBER OF ALUMNAE, AS WELL AS A MEMBER OF THE NEW PLAY DEVELOPMENT GROUP TO PARTICIPATE AS A DIRECTOR.
