Dramatist Magazine Live!

The Bridge Initiative: Women in Theatre is thrilled to announce a theatre community-centered event co-produced with Dramatist Magazine, the official journal of the Dramatists Guild of America. Joey Stocks, Director of Publications for the Dramatist Guild, is curating an evening celebrating playwrights and musical theatre collaborations, community-driven artistic work, and local theatre makers striving to make a difference in Arizona professional theatre.

This one-time event will be hosted at the Tempe Center for the Arts in their beautiful Lakeside Room overlooking Tempe Town Lake on Sunday, November 19th at 6 pm. Tickets are $10 and $5 for students with a valid ID and can be purchased ahead of time online at https://tca.ticketforce.com/, by phone at 480-350-2822, or in person at the box office.

“We are proud to be the second stop on the Dramatist Guild’s new Live series after the inaugural event in Arkansas this past June.” said Tracy Liz Miller, co-producing artistic director of The Bridge Initiative. “The Dramatist Guild is wanting to invest in connecting with members across the nation in a new way and we couldn’t be more thrilled for the opportunity to connect more with our community.”

The Dramatists Guild was formed in 1912 and serves over 7,000 playwrights, composers, lyricists, and librettists across the nation. In addition to contract services, The Guild “acts as an aggressive public advocate for dramatists’ interests” and “believes that a vibrant, vital and provocative theatre is an essential element of the ongoing cultural debate which informs the citizens of a free society.” Visit the Guild’s website at www.dramatistsguild.com.
