Last Tuesday, Project LaFemme participated in the first Meet and Greet with the writers and directors for the upcoming Page to Stage Playwrighting Festival at the Curtis Theatre in Brea. What an inspiring evening!
We are co-producing this weekend of new play readings by local female playwrights coming up August 30 - September 1 with the Curtis Theatre. After reviewing over 400 submissions of full length and one act plays back in April, it has come down to 5 new plays that are being presented. Last week’s Meet and Greet brought together the writers with the directors of these staged readings for the first time. We gathered at the Curtis where introductions were made, Curtis Theatre Artistic Director Kris Kataoka conducted a tour of the theater and then it was time to get down to business. Festival Director Heather Enriquez conducted the inaugural production meeting and we ended the evening with a champagne toast. We are so excited to be launching this project!
It was so amazing to finally meet the writers who created these awesome pieces and to see this project start to take flight. Next step: Auditions coming up next week! August 5th and 6th at the Curtis Theatre! For more information on auditions, please see our previous blog.
Here’s a couple of photos of the first meeting:
