LitFest Sponsors Community Play Readings

After a two-year hiatus, the Spring Green Literary Festival is once again sponsoring an opportunity to read out loud four plays from American Players Theatre’s 2022 season. The community readings will take place on Sundays at 2 p.m. during the month of April, except for Easter, and the first Sunday in May. The series, called “Plays Out Loud,” will be hosted by the Slowpoke Lounge & Cabaret at 137 W. Jefferson Street, Spring Green. 

Playbooks are available for sale at Arcadia Books or on loan from the Spring Green Community Library with a South Central library card. Free scripts will be available at the door on the afternoon of the reading. Those who come are invited to choose a part they want to read or come to just listen and discuss. The purpose is to gain greater understanding of the plays in advance of performance and to have fun reading them out loud with friends and other drama buffs from the area. 

The schedule is as follows: “The Rivals” by Richard Brinsley Sheridan on April 3; “The River Bride” by Marisela Trevino Orta on April 10; “The Moors” by Jen Silverman on April 24; and “Stones in His Pockets” by Marie Jones on May 1. 

The series is free and open to all. Beverages will be for sale during the readings.
