Script Clubs Past

February 6, 2014 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 pm

Beginning February 6, 2014, Mysterious Entity created a monthly “club” to read scripts aloud.  Our goal is not only to raise the profile of the company within our community, but to provide a place for writers, actors, and theatre lovers (including audience enthusiasts!), to gather and read original work, or any script that there is a desire to hear and discuss.  This is not an in-depth workshop session for the plays, but rather a chance for writers/ directors/ actors to gather and hone their “cold reading” and listening skills, discuss their craft, and get feedback on their ideas.

We meet the first Wednesday of each month at Traill College in the Scott house Junior Common Room, 310 London St, at 7pm with the reading to begin at 7:30pm.

Scripts may be submitted to Mysterious Entity by email, one week in advance.  Some Mysterious Entity performers will always be on hand, but local actors are also welcome to come and sign up to do a cold read.

Theatre lovers – come and enjoy the process!

First rule of Script Club … be there.
Second rule of Script Club … always talk about Script Club.
