Join us for this week's Saturday Series reading:
No Saturday Series due to Thanksgiving!
ABOUT THE SATURDAY SERIES:
Most Saturdays at 2:00pm, Chicago Dramatists presents a reading of a play-in-progress. Rehearsed and staged minimally, this program is devised for the playwright to hear their play through the bodies of actors, and to experience it in real-time with you, the audience. After each reading, a short discussion is moderated by a member of the artistic staff. Come be a part of new play development!
Our upcoming schedule can be found here: Saturday Series
Our programs are unparalleled. Students and participants work directly with actors and directors, regularly meet industry professionals, receive showcase opportunities and have ongoing, long-term relationships with instructors and artistic staff.
