Readings will take place through ZOOM the first Thursday of each month from 7-10 pm.  Participants are asked to register by Tuesday evening.  Parts, scripts, and meeting link will be sent out Wednesday morning.  Anyone is invited to participate but spaces are limited.  Others are welcome to “watch” for a small donation but need to understand that these will be “cold readings” with no prior rehearsal.  These readings are an opportunity for friends, new and old, with a shared interest to get together while exploring new and classic plays. Join us for a bit of community theatre, emphasis on community.


June 4 – a new comedy set in the 1930s era of radio plays

July 2 – A Pulitzer Prize winning play by Thornton Wilder, small town

August 6 – a classic play, set on an island, written by the “Queen of Mystery” – Who will survive?
