FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Premiere Stages at Kean
UNION, N.J. –Premiere Stages at Kean University will hold its first annual Spring Readings Series on March 31, and April 1 to 2, at 7:30 p.m. in the Murphy Dunn Theatre on the Kean University main campus, located at 1000 Morris Avenue in Union, N.J. The series is one component of the Premiere Stages Play Festival, which seeks to encourage and nurture emerging dramatists in New Jersey and the greater metropolitan area.
The Spring Readings Series allows playwrights to explore their work in
front of an audience and to discover the strengths and weaknesses inherent
in their scripts. Three plays will be selected from more than 250 submissions,
given a professional reading and considered for expanded development as
part of the Premiere Stages 2005 summer season. One play will be read
each evening and the public is encouraged to actively engage in the new
play-developmental process. Evaluation forms will be distributed, and
patrons may participate in post-reading dialogues with the writers. One
of the three plays will be selected for an Equity Staged Reading in June,
and the most promising play will be awarded a fully produced Actors’
Equity Association (AEA) production in July.
Admission and parking is free. Call (908) 737-4360 for more information
