New Works Series – SEPTEMBER 28

Hendersonville Theatre (HT) continues its New Works Series (formerly called Staged Reading Series) on Saturday, September 28 at 3 p.m. Showcasing the work of area playwrights and performed by local actors, The New Works Series is a FREE public reading of a new play in development. However, donations are welcome to support HT.
HT’s New Works Series offers exciting script-in-hand readings of new plays by emerging local playwrights. The readings are not just passive experiences but interactive sessions that invite you to share your thoughts and provide feedback to the playwright and actors. A short discussion will follow each reading to provide feedback to the playwright about their script. There is no charge to attend or participate; however, donations are welcome and will be used to support HT.
Hendersonville Theatre is committed to exploring and developing new work for American theater and supporting local playwrights with their creative process from concept to production. Playwrights who want to submit work for consideration for the New Works Series can follow the submission guidelines here and email questions to [email protected]
