Playwriting Workshop: You Need a Dramaturge!

April 04, 2020

Playwrights Atlantic Resource Center (PARC) and Association of Professional Theatre of Newfoundland and Labrador (APTNL) in partnership with St. John's Shorts and the Women's Work Festival are pleased to announce an upcoming Playwriting Workshop online via ZOOM on April 4 - 5th, 2020.

In this two day workshop you will have a chance to work with PARC Artistic Director, Pamela Halstead. She has close to twenty years experience as a dramaturge, including the Banff Playwrights Colony, lead dramaturge for Lunchbox Theatre’s Stage One Festival and the PARC Playwrights Colony. Only 12 participants can be accommodated.

The workshop entitled You Need a Dramaturge! is open to both emerging and established playwrights and your script can be at any stage - full draft, a few scenes or only an idea. Online via ZOOM  Pamela Halstead will discuss your play with you, asking dramaturgical questions to focus you and provide you a clear next direction. The workshop is not outcome focused. Return the next day with a whole new play, one new scene or monologue, or more questions! The process and outcomes are different for each participant.

To register please pay at the PayPal Button below or call PARC toll free at 1-877-845-1341. Cost: $50 for PARC or APTNL members, $75 for non-members.

Thank you to APTNL, St. John's Shorts and the Women's Work Festival for making this workshop possible.
