Calling all thespians to organize this great activity.

Our play reading group is finally starting up this Fall in person. 

Bring your ideas and suggestions for how to proceed. Think about what plays would be appropriate. If you have never participated in a play reading group, it is not at all intimidating. Just a group sitting together and taking turns reading lines of different characters.

Experience is most definitely not needed!!! 

Date of meeting TBD.
