NOTE: These are table readings so we will primarily be casting from the group (with some exceptions). If you have actors that will read parts for your play, please let us know. Additionally, send your scripts to Clyde Santana at least two weeks before the reading. Also, if you are not going to be able to attend, please give him as much advance notice as possible (two weeks) so that he won’t count on you for the reading.
Until notified otherwise, all plays will be read virtually on the Zoom Platform provided by Jean Klein.
In order to join the workshop, send an email to The Z’s Artistic Director, Bart Kuebler, [email protected].
