Staged Reading Series
FOR YOUTH AGES 8-18
We might be at home, but DACO is here to help you explore, create, and perform all from the comfort and safety of home.
Register to audition for DACO's Virtual Workshop:
Staged Reading Series!
March 12, 2021
Students ages 8-18 are eligible to audition.
Virtual & In-Person Staged Readings
Staged Readings come from short stories, essays, plays, speeches, or anywhere else we feel the written word might be made more impactful as read by local performers. Each staged reading will be unique and serve as a wonderful source of entertainment.
Our staged readings will include suggested or full costumes, fixed positions for our virtual productions, and possibly minimal stage movement for our in-person performances.
We will live-stream online and, conditions permitting, before live audiences.
Staged Readings are performance-based. Actors will bring the same amount of energy, connection, and skill to their character(s) as in any other type of performance.
This is a perfect project for every actor! Seasoned and new actors are encouraged to participate. This is also great for performers who are interested in acting but don’t have a ton of time. For those of you who are looking for a small project to fill time between shows or other commitments, this may serve as a wonderful creative project for you!
DACO will switch between virtual and in-person readings throughout our 2021 season. All staged readings will require an audition.
NOTE: PARTICIPATION AND CASTING
By participating in our workshop, you are agreeing to the Creative Team’s vision regarding placement for your child's selected characters and scenes. There are no opt-out options for this production post casting.
LEAD ONLY is not an option for this production. You are not able to only participate if given a specific role(s) in the show. Once casting is complete, actors are expected to remain committed to the show and fully support the creative vision.
All actors are expected to fully memorize their lines and minimum stage directions.
Dreamers Actors Workshop is designed to give actors a chance to explore and sharpen their acting skills in a positive and nurturing environment.
The workshop challenges performers of all experience levels.
The process is a positive experience where students are given the tools they will need to feel successful on the virtual stage.
Rehearsals are limited. Although actors are not called to every rehearsal session, we expect actors to arrange their activities and commitments around our extremely short rehearsal schedule.
