Work sessions were held to create the Playhouse and there were many of them. They were ongoing events daily for almost 4 months and volunteers logged hundreds of hours. We did it so we would have a place to do what we love to do… TO PLAY! Now we have PLAY SESSIONS!
Now that we have the Playhouse and our community has embraced it we need to sustain it by doing lots of plays. There were 5 in our first season and next season there will be six!
Those plays don't happen on their own. There's a lot of creation involved. Of course there's the efforts of the director and actors during those 8 weeks of rehearsal, but what about the set they perform on, the costumes they wear and the props they handle? Those things don't magically appear. They have to be created. That's part of what we call "playing" and it's every bit as important as acting.
Why do we call it "playing?" Because we have lots of fun doing it together. That is the point of having a Playhouse. It's not just a place for the community to come and see talent. It's also a place for community members to gather and create things together. Players are pretty much always needed and with a variety of talents from carpentry, plumbing (yes some sets have plumbing), electrical, painting, sewing, finding costumes, making and finding props. If you've got a talent or the desire to develop a talent you are welcome and encouraged to come play with us.
The play sessions will always be posted with all the other events on the calendar at the bottom of every page on the website. If you click on the events on the calendar you will learn everything you need to know about the event including who the organizer is and how to contact them with questions. You are always welcome but if the organizer knows you're coming, your talents can be put to better use.
When you play you earn VIP credits at the rate of $1 for every 30 minutes you spend creating and playing. You can use these to reduce the price of your tickets!
