Sunday July 28th, starting promptly at 1:45 and going until 3.45pm, we will rehearse and perform readings of several short scenes from plays or scripts written by members of the group or taken from published work. Performances will be followed by discussion of the work presented.
Your experience may range from professional to none. Enthusiasm and flexibility are the only requirements. We hope people will be inspired to work together to create and to have fun.
This group thrives when you bring in short scripts that you want to work on with others either acting, directing or as a writer. Your scene can be something you have written or from published work, play or movie. Consult with Steve about your script ideas before the meeting at [masked]
Remember to bring $5 per person as payment for this event. This goes toward paying for the room, group Meetup fees and other admin costs. Bring cash in small bills. (New members please read a note about the venue at the bottom of this page).
FORMAT OF THE DAY
At 1:45 pm we will start with introductions. Then on to finalizing casting, followed by rehearsal in separate groups for each script, and then performances. Discussion of the writing and performances completes the day. Please commit to being there for the full session.
If you RSVP and turn up promptly on the day there will, most likely, be opportunities for you to act or direct.
Casting for scenes may also be arranged in advance through Meetup's messaging and comments section so it is worth keeping an eye open for notices of such. If you are a new member and want to be considered for advance casting please have a suitable photo in your profile. Also check that you can receive messages from this group in your Meetup profile settings.
If you want to bring in a scene or short play that you want to act in, direct or that you have written please consult in advance with Steve at [masked] Running time is usually up to 10 pages/mins for a small cast scene and up to 13 for a larger cast but this can be negotiated.
A note about the location. SHARE! provides inexpensive rooms in Culver City that are mostly for groups who want to work with growth and recovery issues. This meetup group doesn't fall into those categories. SHARE! welcome us to use their rooms as, in their view, we are offering people a community for working with communication skills, and that fits neatly into the focus of their mission.
Any inquiries, problems or help required - email [masked]
Best Wishes, Danny and Mary
