OPC Changing Schedules for 2018

In Uncategorized on July 28, 2018 at 3:04 pm

Due to unforeseen circumstances, we regret that the dates listed for classes in 2018 are being rescheduled. Our commitment to providing comprehensive instruction and feedback is unwavering, but life sometimes has challenges that are simply unanticipated. Please check this Page over the next few weeks to find the updated schedule for the 2018-19 season.

Scene 1

(Two Playwrights meet in a local coffee shop.)

Passionate:

Hey.  Did you hear that Oho Playwrights has changed the schedule for the rest of the year?

Absorbed:

(Tapping away on a laptop.)  Yep.

Passionate:

What happened?

Absorbed:

Not sure.  Something about someone getting hit by a bus or something.

Passionate:

Oh my God!  Seriously??

Absorbed:

I don’t know.  (Tapping away.)  Stuff happens.

Passionate:

Wow.  What should I do?

Absorbed:

Keep writing.  I’m sure they’ll announce the schedule soon.

Passionate:

Yeah,  I guess you’re right.

Absorbed:

Of course I’m right.  I’m always right.  (Tapping on the keys.)  How’s your husband?

Passionate:

Oh my God!  My Husband!!  (Running out of the coffee shop.)

Absorbed:

Writers!  Go figure.

Playwrighting Class

In Class Info on May 15, 2018 at 6:26 pm
Playwrighting – All Levels –
( 6 Classes & 1 Public Reading.) Saturday, June 9 – July 14, 2018
(10am – 2pm) –  Human Race Studio
126 North Main Street, Dayton, Ohio 45402


This class is designed to take the mystery out of playwrighting. The method of building a play is explored through a variety of exercises. Our focus will be on understanding the tools in basic dramatic structure and other aspects of storytelling and the building of a play. There will be a lot of writing, a lot of thinking, some mutual support from other playwrights, a fair amount of laughing, some tasty food at breaks, and a general atmosphere of fun and learning. Each playwright will have a goal of completing work that will be presented in a public reading. Playwrights will have the opportunity to hear their work read aloud by actors and prepared by directors. The class is designed for novices and experienced playwrights, actors and directors alike. No playwrights are expected to begin the class with work already completed.
Participants:  Min: 3 – Max: 8


If you have any questions, please contact Jahzerah Brooks, our Project Administrator, at: opcregistrar@gmail.com

 

These activities are based on a belief that playwrights need a place to practice & explore, to study & share, and to be given encouragement and a deadline.  We hope you can join us.


All Activities are Hosted by the Human Race Theatre Company,  Presented by the Ohio Playwrights Circle and Sponsored by the American ArtWorks Foundation.

OPC Submission and Production Workshop Series

In Class Info on March 26, 2018 at 1:49 am

As writers we are not always great at focusing on the business of writing.  In fact, we often stink at it.  We often avoid anything but the writing.  As a playwright, our works are not produced if we don’t get them out there for others to read, hear, and evaluate.

This workshop series is about getting your work produced. Playwrights should come to the workshop with one or more completed play.  We will explore treatments, a pitch, format, what not to do, where and when to submit, creating submissions lists and generally getting organized in order to do what many of us just don’t get around to doing well enough.  It doesn’t stop with the writing.

(6 workshop meetings) Saturday April 14 – May 19, 2018
(10am – 1pm) – Burnell Roberts Room, Metropolitan Arts Center
126 North Main Street, Dayton, Ohio 45402
