In only a few weeks, more than 20 artists will gather in a mid-town rehearsal studio to begin a workshop of ONE, produced by Sonnet Repertory Theatre. So we thought it was time to introduce you to SRT.
Sonnet Repertory Theatre, Inc. is dedicated to classic theatre for the modern planet. SRT promotes classic plays and adaptations, providing forums for collaboration between emerging artists and established professionals. With Classics in the Classroom, SRT aims not only to entertain, but also to educate young people by engaging them with timeless literature through expressive theatre.
On July 13th, SRT will be hosting their Collaborative Series and you’re invited.
Join us on Monday, July 13 at 7PM
Collaborative Series 2009
SRT’s Collaborative Series assembles both recent graduates of the nation’s foremost drama programs and veterans of New York theater for an evening of 15-minute plays. The goal is two-fold: first, to offer young artists an opportunity to perform, and second, to welcome those new to the realm of professional theater into the community that awaits them.
Over 24 hours this summer, twelve actors and three directors will read, rehearse, and perform three 15-minute plays. These actors and directors are unfamiliar to each other. These plays, inspired by a theme from classic literature, have never before been produced. Our audience will be privy to an evening of theater predicated on collaboration, risk, and instinct.
