Play for Keeps

Play for Keeps

The 2014 season of the Play for Keeps playwriting workshops had a very successful kick-off on April 7, spotlighting readings of work that had been developed in last year's series. And that leads us right into the new season of the workshops themselves. We've got a brand new venue this year, The Public House Theatre, at 3914 North Clark Street. Play for Keeps will be held from 4:00 to 6:00 on the following Sunday afternoons:
  • April 27
  • May 4
  • May 18
  • June 1
  • June 15
  • June 28
The cost for the full run of workshops is $25. There can be only a limited number of participants, so please contact us to reserve your spot if you'd like to be involved.

Words and Music

Stockyards is hard at work on a collaborative venture with Midwest New Musicals at Light Opera Works to present this series of concert readings of new musicals. Midwest New Musicals' mission is the development of musical theater writers and the creation of original musicals. It provides an intensive program that allows writers to explore the use of music, lyrics and dialogue through hands-on assignments that introduce them to musical theater forms and collaborative techniques. These new pieces are developed in the workshop and, when they're ready, presented to the public in the Words and Music concert reading series.

Women's Performance Art Festival

This fall, Stockyards Theatre Project returns to its roots by bringing back the Women's Performance Arts Festival! For several years, Stockyards presented this festival featuring a wide variety of performance: drama, music, improv, dance, storytelling, sketch comedy, stand-up, and more. Although the event has been on hiatus for a little while, it will be returning to the Stockyards schedule in 2014. We'll be posting more information as it becomes available.
