First Fridays! Reader’s Theater Series

In addition to the main productions, the HDCC’s inaugural “First Fridays! Reader’s Theater Series” is accepting proposals from directors to bring their talents to our stage with cutting-edge drama and comedy, American classics, what’s hot from Broadway and original scripts, all to be performed script-in-hand.  With only three rehearsals and one performance for each production, this exciting series gives playwrights, directors, actors and audiences the opportunity to experience live theater focusing on the words.  A question and answer session with the directors and actors will follow each performance. The readings will take place on the first Fridays of select months.
