Playcrafters is pleased to bring back our Readers’ Theater — a staged reading with talented actors!

Our history with staged readings is rich, dating back to 1998. Since then we’ve done 13 staged readings. (See our past shows.)  What should we perform this year?

Playcrafters is now accepting submissions from anyone who would like to direct a staged reading this year.

Please submit the script of a play that we can consider performing as a staged reading. PDFs to Geri Skelly at gerigem@optonline.netScripts must be submitted by May 5.
