The First Lab had over 60 people in it...Now, for April we have

Saturday April 9th Second Saturday Theater at the Howland Cultural center in Beacon NY.

Passing the Torch Through the Arts present
“Works in Progress” an Actors/writers lab that performs staged readings

Last Month’s “Works in Progress” was a great success Deidra Dowling’s “The Dray Horse” and Anna Mione’s “The Tea Party” was a big hit, great crowd and great comments.

 We were so proud to present these two Hudson Valley treasures. Also to our fine performers: Pat, Jean Moss and Judy Memsner. We applaud your fine work.

The Lab is catching on. We are attracting many new and established writers and local actors to our events and encourage them to come, and to bring acting projects as well as original writing material to share with our group and to perform at our staged events.

This Month is April and our theme is the Jewish Family in Honor of Passover. April 1st 1933 was the day that Hitler officially boycotted Jewish owned business and began his public policies that led to the atrocities against the Jews. We also offer a World War 2 Love story to balance the readings.

(Selected scenes from) Lost in Yonkers, Neil Simon’s Pulitzer Prize winning work will be read. The play examines a family struggling to survive in the not too distant past. It is breathtaking in its humanity.

Anna Mione’s “Between the Sheets”, this play is about a wartime romance in the life of a famous WW II photographer and is based on actual events.     

We are still looking for all level of actors to read these works and for other lab projects so actors please come ready to join in.

  Our lab starts at 6:00pm and is $5.00 for writers.
  Our performance starts at 8:00pm and is $10.00 for the general public.
