Indiana Playwrights Circle Bimonthly Events

January 5, 2020

Bi-monthly meeting

Free and open to the public! 

Calling all playwrights, directors, actors, and producers!

From Page to Stage - Getting your show produced!

So you’ve written your great American play – and you've secured a local production at Fringe or in a local theatre. How do you go about producing your play for the stage? Toiling alone in your office struggling to tell your story by putting lyrical, pithy, dialogue in the mouths of your characters is one thing – getting it produced on a stage in a theatre is quite another.

The Indiana Playwrights Circle is holding a large group meeting on Sunday, Jan. 5, 2020, at 5:00 at Broadway United Methodist Church. June McCarty Clair will be discussing all of the ins and outs of producing a play, and sharing her personal experiences. She will be joined by Spencer Elliott, local director who will talk about working with new plays and playwrights from a director's eye view. We would like to invite all playwrights, directors and actors to this event.

June McCarty Clair has produced and directed many plays – in theatres, schools, and churches, over the course of her forty plus theatrical career. She has produced and/or directed shows in locales as varied as the UpperStage of the IRT, public and private schools, and intimate stages in Carmel and Indianapolis. Spencer Elliott is a local director, actor, lighting designer, and sound designer who has worked with numerous theatrical companies around central Indiana. He is currently the director of Heritage Christian School’s theater program.

We will also have a directors / playwright meet and greet and invite local directors who like working with new playwrights to come introduce themselves as part of the networking aspect of this event.
