We schedule frequent play readings to help the play selection committee hear a script come to life, but even more importantly, to allow people who may not have the time or the courage to take on a role in our staged productions to have a chance to exercise their voice as an actor. Reading the script in this informal supportive setting provides “safe” opportunities for actors to practice “cold” readings of unfamiliar material. At the end of the reading, we solicit opinions from both readers and listeners about the suitability of the show for the M&M stage.
Next scheduled play reading:
