Luminaries chosen for Third Annual Playwrights Showcase !
July 18-21, 2007
ARVADA, CO â€“ The Arvada Center for the Arts and Humanities and Red Rocks Community Collegeâ€™s Theatre Arts and Dance program are pleased to announce the guest artists and luminaries chosen for the Playwrights Showcase of the Western Region to be held at the Arvada Center on
July 18-21, 2007.
This event is for playwrights, producers, directors, actors, educators and community members who are interested in sharing a vital experience that celebrates new works and the craft of playwriting.
The Showcase is a unique partnership created to support the original work of playwrights living in 19 western states. The four-day event is designed for enthusiasts of the arts and all interested public. Each day includes day and evening sessions. Original play readings will be followed by critical discussions with a panel of well known theater luminaries and guest artists.
The highly acclaimed panel includes:
- Richard Dresser
- Dawson Moore
- Aoise Stratford
- Kent Thompson
- Chip Walton
- Edith Weiss
The Showcase has been expanded to include four full days of original play readings followed by critical discussions led by a panel of theatre luminaries. In addition, conference attendees will have the opportunity to participate in inspiring workshops and also network with professional playwrights, directors, producers, actors, educators and other theatre artists. We have added two special evening events: the Boot Camp Showcase on Friday, July 20, 2007, featuring excerpts from works by Boot Camp 2007 participants; and, on July 21, 2007, there will be an exclusive, one-night only performance of works of playwrights who were featured in the previous Playwrights Showcase of the Western Region (2004 and 2005). Red Rocks Community College will host the Showcase for July 18 and 19, and the Arvada Center for the Arts and Humanities will host the events held July 20 and 21, 2007.
