The Theatre Company of Saugus presents virtual sessions in which we read aloud new plays. All the plays have been submitted by TCS members and friends, and the authors will be listening in to hear how their work sounds.
You can participate as an actor by reading one of the roles in the plays. Or you can just listen and enjoy hearing these works for the first time. Participation is free!
See the links below for signing up to read a role, and to get into the Zoom sessions.
There will be three evening sessions in April and May 2021.
