The Hamilton Gibson Women’s Project is gearing up for a great new project for 2017. What She Wrote, will include play writing workshops led by Clare Ritter, followed by the production of a select number of the plays written. In addition to writing plays, there will be opportunities for women to direct, assume back stage production responsibilities, and perform.
Playwriting 101, a basic seminar covering how to write a 10 minute play, will include plot and character development, stage direction and common pitfalls. Participants may choose to attend one of the following workshops: February 8 from 6:30 – 8:30 PM or February 18 from 9:30 – 11:30 AM.
These will be followed by Playwriting Workshops , offered March 8, 6:30 – 8:30 PM , March 18, 9:30 to 11:30 AM, April 12, 6:30 – 8:30 PM, and April 22: 9:30-11:30 AM . These will be designed for participants to bring works in progress to be read out loud, with feedback from other attendees. (Readers are needed: All are Welcome). Participants may choose to attend any one of these sessions.
All workshops will be held at the Warehouse Gallery/Theatre.
May 22nd is the final deadline for participants to submit scripts for consideration, including 5 copies, stapled, with title page that contains the name of the play, & Author’s contact information (name, address, e-mail, phone). Scripts may be mailed or dropped off at Hamilton-Gibson Productions, 29 Water Street, Wellsboro, PA 16901
Submitted plays will be reviewed by an independent panel of local readers. Selection of submitted works to be presented, will be based on the play’s feasibility, suitability, and general fit to make up a cohesive, well balanced production. This is NOT a contest, and no prizes will be awarded.
Final selection of plays will be announced on June 22nd at the opening night of MAME, produced by Hamilton-Gibson.
Production of What She Wrote will take place October 26,27, 28, 29 in the Warehouse Theater.
Perhaps you are not a writer, performer, director or stage hand, but you’d like to help. Hamilton-Gibson is still accepting Corporate/ or individual sponsors to offset the production of What She Wrote.
