Wasatch Theatre Company Page-to-Stage Festival 


Pin It

Along with the first whispers of fall come the first of the new theater season’s productions. But, even though we might know intellectually that a show isn’t born on opening night, we don’t always consider the process by which an author gives birth to a script, which gives birth to a directing assignment, which gives birth to … you get the idea.

Local artists and local audiences get a chance to work together on that process—and see some of the finished results—during Wasatch Theatre Company’s Page-to-Stage Festival. Free workshops offer opportunities for playwrights and stage directors to hone their craft. Work-inprogress plays are offered for audience feedback, staged readings. And new, completed works by local writers play in repertory: the documentarystyle education exploration Making Waves; seven new one-act works in Short Shorts; and the puppet-driven musical Hands Up! Become part of the process of creating (or enjoying) the next great locally created play.

Wasatch Theatre Company Page-to-Stage Festival @ Rose Wagner Center, 138 W. 300 South, 801-355-ARTS, Sept. 10–27, ArtTix.org
