Providing a nurturing environment to develop new plays and outstanding artists. We accomplish this through our various programs and activities that we offer such as:
THE CORE PROJECT: An ongoing intensive workshop for writers, directors and actors (or any combination thereof) to develop new plays. Playwrights will receive a one on one consultation with the artistic director about their play. Then work with a director and actors to have their play read. Plays from the CORE Project may be selected for the Play Reading Series and for development.
NEW PLAY READING SERIES: Plays are read before an invited audience and followed by a question and answer session with the playwright and artists.
THE STRAWBERRY ONE-ACT FESTIVAL: The festival is presented twice a year, in February and the summer July/August, in which plays compete for the title of BEST PLAY. The festival culminates with the Awards Ceremony & Performance in which awards are also presented for Best Direction, Best Actor & Best Actress. (Learn more and see a show.)
MUSICAL THEATRE WORKSHOP: Students are taught by theatre professionals and will learn Broadway, Gospel and Classical style songs, how to sing in an ensemble as well as solo, work on scenes and choreography that will lead to a performance.
