Green Lake Play Series

July 9, 2014 5:53am


Green Lake is about to take center stage for not one but eight original short plays. The performances are a new project through the Green Lake Play Series, founded by a group of writers, directors and actors who wanted to showcase our unique neighborhood and Park.

The staged reading performances will be at The Bathhouse Theatre July 27 and are free to the public.

What’s a staged reading? According to the group’s Indiegogo page it’s “the step between writing a play and a full production. Actors are brought in to read the lines aloud, sometimes accompanied by small amounts of action, in order to give the playwrights and directors a sense of what still needs to change in the script and give them ideas about how to stage the full production.”

The group is asking for donations via an indiegogo project to help fund renting the space, staffing fees and to bring the short plays to full production.

Will the performances be an homage to Greenlake ala the style of Portlandia? ¬†You’ll have to attend to find out.

For more information, go to the group’s Facebook page or Indiegogo project.

Here’s all the details: July 27, 2 p.m. at Seattle Public Theatre at The Bath House.
