Script Club

Presented by Little Theatre of Norfolk and Peninsula Community Theatre

Script Club is like a book club for theatre lovers! We will read play scripts instead of novels. Some plays are ones we may consider for future seasons, while others have elements limiting the ability to produce them locally.
We are offering three options this round. Read as many as you wish!

The Script Club program kick-off will be held Monday, May 11, at 8pm via Zoom. After the kick-off, each play will follow its own schedule of virtual meetings.
Please register via Eventbrite at https://www.eventbrite.com/x/script-club-registration-104588830006

Is there a play you would like to read? If so, let us know at . (Yes, the address is at LTN)

THE CRUCIBLE
by Arthur Miller

The Crucible takes place in Salem, Massachusetts, in 1692 during the Salem witch trials. The play is a fictionalized version of the trials and tells the story of a group of young Salem women who falsely accuse other villagers of witchcraft.

ROSENCRANTZ AND GILDENSTERN ARE DEAD
by Tom Stoppard

Part Shakespearean tragedy, part Laurel and Hardy comedy routine, Tom Stoppard's masterful debut play calls fate, free will, art, reality, communication, and the very constructs of theatre into question, all the while leading two most honorable, adventurous, brilliant, and inept characters on their path to their unfortunate, unavoidable, infamous fate.
