The Let’s Play! Company will present three original short plays in the spirit of the holiday season. This performance is the culmination of the 2018 company’s mentorship program, where each company member was paired with a mentor in a field of technical theatre. The lighting, set design, direction, stage management, and marketing for this showcase will be completed entirely by company members. Come join us to experience what Let’s Play! is all about.

Masterclasses are for performers looking to develop specific skills in order to pursue a career in theater. Our series of masterclasses is held in the summer, and we host one to two guest artists for each. This is an opportunity for intensive training in a specialized area with experienced professionals. See our summer masterclasses.
Our company of actors makes Let’s Play! new and exciting each month. Auditions are held for company placement in January each year. Company members are volunteers and can sometimes be found at community events playing improvisational games or holding storytelling sessions. If you would like to request our company members at your event or class, please email email@example.com.
In addition to developing performing talents, we work on the development of plays written by local playwrights and plays that clearly articulate our mission. Occasionally we host Second Saturday workshops for development of short plays and scenes, allowing playwrights to bring short pieces of work to get an initial read by actors. For more intensive work, a week long workshop can be held with our company to work on a more fully developed play.
We are in the process of developing a theater education tour designed specifically for schools. Two to three company members will travel to schools in the region to work with students on telling stories using action and dialogue. If you would like to be included in our list of interested educators, let us know.
