Hampton University
HU Players & CO. Reach Out to Hampton Roads Playwrights
01/30/2013 - #47

Hampton, Va. – The Hampton Players & Company is proud to present an innovative and exciting initiative for budding playwrights this semester. The New Voices: New Play Series will provide playwrights in the Hampton Roads area with an opportunity to see their work produced as a staged reading for a live audience. 

The series will allow playwrights to obtain feedback from the audience members and faculty of the Department of Fine and Performing Arts.  These critiques will enable the playwrights to revise their works, based on sound advice from theatre professionals and potential audience members.  Selected plays may subsequently be considered for inclusion in the Hampton Players & Company main stage season in 2013-2014.

The department will announce selected plays to be produced in the staged reading. The selected works will be performed in The Little Theatre on Feb. 22, 23, and 24.

To Submit A Play to the New Voices: New Plays Series:

Playwrights should send completed, revised manuscripts via email only to:  robin.boisseau@hamptonu.edu no later than 5 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 7, 2013.  Playwrights should also include the following information with their manuscript:  name, phone number, email address, and local address.

The Hampton Players and Company is a professionally run performing ensemble.  The performers are not limited to the University stage, but have appeared on stages throughout the United States.
