You don’t want to miss this year’s Salon and the amazingly talented artists that will be working with us next month! Mark your calendars for The 3rd Annual Working Theater Directors Salon, April 16-22nd, 2012.
Playwrights Jocelyn Bioh, Bekah Brunstetter, Ed Cardona, Jr., Tim J. Lord, Rehana Lew Mirza, Matthew Paul Olmos, and Crystal Skillman will be contributing seven short plays addressing the prompt, Will Work for _____ in light of this year’s theme, WORK FOR CHANGE. These plays will be directed by 7 directors chosen at random at a lottery during our opening party on the April 16th, rehearsed with a company of professional actors, and performed at our final event on Sunday, April 22nd.
Directors Anita Gonzalez, Melissa Moschitto, and Jenna Worsham will be presenting original pieces as part of our night of director-driven work on Saturday, April 21st.
Our ever-popular Agent/Artistic Director/Producer/Union Panel is back, as well as a panel on Art as Activism – stay tuned for an announcement of our inspring panelists!
How can you get involved? Make sure to attend our opening kick-off party on Monday, April 16th for a chance to direct one of the 7 short plays. Attend our panels to hear from established artists and meet other emerging artists in the NYC theater community. RSVP to our often sold-out events through nycharities.org. And spread the word via Facebook, Twitter, and MySpace (if you have MySpace, we really do appreciate your old-school swagger).
And if you can’t attend, because you are in Tahiti or Nebraska and would still like to show your support, consider making a donation through Kickstarter to help us raise our goal of $2,500 to fund this year’s programming!
(Special thanks to our alums Isaac Klein, Rebecca Martinez, and Patrick Vassel for saying nice things about us.)
The 3rd Annual Working Theater Directors Salon will take place on April 16-22nd at the June Havoc Theatre at the Abingdon Theatre Arts Complex, 312 West 36th Street.
