Table Read My Screenplay

If you have never attended a Table Read before, this is an amazing opportunity for a writer — to hear their words spoken by professional actors. The first 5 pages are critical to catching and maintaining a reader’s attention (especially if your reader is a producer, director, manager or agent). But it’s equally important to hear your words spoken aloud — preferably by professional actors.


Here’s your chance to watch scripts in action, participate in feedback, and hear the valuable actors’ perspective.

New location: The Fifty/50
2047 w. Division St
Chicago, IL

Sunday, January 6, 2013 from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM (CST)

OUR OWN Member Scripts To Be Read on January 6th:

Eyes for an Eye by Riik Makkoogan 
Beauty Pageant Redemption by Barbara Bloomquist
God Gets Fired by Ron Maede
Chairman of the Board Up by David Foreman
Catch as Catch Can by Christopher Cavanaugh
Man at the Top by Larry Shulruff
Year of the Pig by Liz Ellison
The True Story of Hammond VanOchre and His Amazing Steam Pig by Melissa Birk

*Please note that scripts were not chosen as “winners.”  Many factors went into the decision-making process such as offering a variety of genres and writing style.

Come support each other.

Have a very happy New Year.

Linda Frothingham, VP of Speakers and Events, CSN

    Can I find out ahead of time when you're having the table read? I would have liked to have entered my first five pages. I never got an email about it...

      It was in the CSN Nov. 28 newsletter. It was also announced at the last two meetings. So sorry you didn't get the notice. We'll see you on Sunday.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
