Playwrights and theater lovers! It has been and will continue to be our great privilege to help Northwest playwrights develop their work. We'd love to involve you more closely in the operation of the Salon as we evolve into a Playwrights' Center. The 2019 season, our third, features monthly staged readings, with imaginative directors and talented local actors. We are working towards offering interim steps in the development process in 2019 as well, including writers groups, classes, closed readings and individual meetings with directors and dramaturgs.
Now that the Salon is growing, we'd be thrilled to welcome a social media maven, a stage manager, and another usher. If you yourself are not available, please share this with friends, family, and theatre lovers in your life who are seeking closer involvement with performance art, and opportunities to build their collection of skills. Here's a brief job description of each and the time commitment.
