Looking for proposals for Majestic Reader’s Theatre Company 2018-19 Season!
The deadline is March 30, 2018.
On the last weekend of every month we present three high quality performances of an exceptional play (sometimes two matinees and sometimes two evening shows depending on the mainstage schedule). This accomplishes two goals. It gives local actors more opportunity to perform in significant productions and hone their skills with other experienced actors while only committing to a one month rehearsal schedule. Since it is a reading, all actors carry scripts. The purpose of the scripts is to limit the amount of time memorizing lines while maximizing character development. The actors tell the story using their voice and posture to convey emotion. The audience uses their imagination to place the actors in a specific location or time. This is Community Theatre so the producers, readers and directors are not paid.
Corvallis gets to see plays that might normally not be produced as a main stage production because they are too expensive, controversial or appeal to a small segment of the local audience. The shows are produced in the upstairs Lab space which seats 5
