Archives for posts with tag: Montgomery Davis Play Development Series

MCT workshops two new plays annually through the Montgomery Davis Play Development Series.  To that end, we accept new scripts for consideration on a rolling basis.

 

ELIGIBILITY: Priority for consideration lies with Wisconsin artists.  Playwrights should only submit work if they are current Wisconsin residents, have a link to Wisconsin in their own history, and/or consider Wisconsin-specific subject matter in their play.

 

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES: Please send a query letter and the first ten pages of your script.  Electronic or paper submissions are accepted.  Email Marcella Kearns or send hard copy to the following address: Marcella Kearns, Lead Educator/Literary Manager, Milwaukee Chamber Theatre, 158 N. Broadway, Milwaukee,  WI 53202.  See email and additional information at http://www.chamber-theatre.com/performance/play-reading.aspx.

I’m very much looking forward to hearing this play and can use all the feedback I can get.  And Katie’s put a delightful cast together for the reading.  And it’s free!

Milwaukee, WI …True to its mission to nurture local artists, Milwaukee Chamber Theatre (MCT) presents the Montgomery Davis Play Development Series staged reading of MORE LOSERS, by Milwaukee-based playwright James Fletcher

An unemployed and depressed dreamer, a barista with writer’s block, a young woman looking for love through sex, a simple man searching for understanding.  Four tales of people marginalized by society.  You’ll need to walk a few miles in their shoes before you label them “losers.”

Playwright James Fletcher is also the co-founder and artistic director of Milwaukee’s Bunny Gumbo Theatre Company, which produced his play LOSERS in 2007. MORE LOSERS continues the style and themes explored in LOSERS, giving patrons a glimpse into the lives of four more underdogs. Katie Cummings makes her MCT debut directing the new work featuring Alexandra Bonesho, Drew Brhel, Karen Estrada, Dan Katula, Emmitt Morgans.

MORE LOSERS  will be performed on Monday, September 17, 2012 at 7:30 p.m. in the Skylight Bar & Bistro, located on the second level of the Broadway Theatre Center, 158 N. Broadway in Milwaukee’s Historic Third Ward.  Reading reservations are not required; seating is first-come, first-served. The reading is free of charge, with donations kindly accepted.  The Skylight Bar & Bistro will be open for dinner and refreshments beginning at 5:30 p.m. For more information, contact Milwaukee Chamber Theatre at (414) 276-8842.


Milwaukee Chamber Theatre is doing a staged reading of one of my plays.  Katie Cummings is directing a stellar cast and I’d love your feedback.
