Event Description

MARCH 17 PLAYWRIGHTS COLLABORATIVE MEETING AT THE CALIFORNIA STAGE THEATRE:
At the Sunday, Mar 17, Playwrights Collaborative Meeting (7:00 PM) Leo McElroy will present a workshop on “Writing For The Theater.” Recently, Playwrights Collaborative was contacted by the Lenaea Theatre Festival, who asked if we could provide a lecturer on “Writing For The Theater,” to speak to high school students at Folsom Lake College. Leo McElroy agreed, and conducted a 90-minute workshop on February 3rd. More than 30 young people attended and participated in the discussion. He will repeat this workshop for the PC. What would you say to high school students about the basics of writing for theater? Leo will offer his thoughts and ask for ideas of what he may have left out.
We will also read and discuss 2 short plays: “Bruce Guelden’s “Budget Airlines Flight 711” and Mark Smith’s “Extinguishing The Pilot Light”
This meeting is at the California Stage Theatre, 2509 “R” Street (on “R” Street between 25th and 26th Streets), Sacramento. The Playwrights Collaborative thanks the California Stage Theater Company for the use of its theater. theater
