Description

Williamston Theatre and Capital Area District Library are partnering to host a discussion series based on theatrical scripts of shows being produced by the Williamston Theatre!

This will be similar to a book club, where participants read the play before the discussion and then come together with members of the production team to share their thoughts. These discussion groups will take place before the show is on the Williamston Theatre stage so participants can attend and experience the full journey from page to stage.

We'll be having discussions on the first three plays on our schedule for 2023 – Wild Horses by Allison Gregory, Mrs. Harrison by R. Eric Thomas, and Alabaster by Audrey Cefaly. A limited number of copies of the scripts will be available to borrow from the Capital Area District Library. There will be a discussion date for each play. Williamston Theatre will bring in theater professionals involved in the production to lead the discussion of the play. Participants will receive a discount on tickets, should they decide to attend a performance.
