Special Saturday Seminars

Denton Community Theatre hosts occasional Saturday seminars for interested adults covering a variety of theatre related topics. We are fortunate to have many talented and skilled performers and technicians willing to share their knowledge. Past topics have included stage movement, set painting, producing, stage management, vocal training for speaking and singing, and many more. Seminars are generally held at the Campus Theatre from 1pm to 3pm and are free to attend.

All Special Saturday programs are free, but reservations are suggested for this seminar, and space is limited. Please contact Julie Brinker at 940 382-7014 or email thedctteam@campustheatre.com if you are interested in leading a seminar.

Play Readers and Writers of Denton

Play Readers will resume reading plays together on Sept. 4, 2018, at 7 pm at the Campus Theatre. This group meets on the first Tuesday of each month. No reservation or advanced notice of attendance needed.  This is an informal gathering that decides on a play to read aloud that evening. If a DCT audition is coming up, that play is usually selected for the evening’s reading.

Playwrights of Denton will resume on the third Tuesday of each month, if there are playwrights who want to have something read. The next meeting of Playwrights of Denton is scheduled for Sept. 18. If you have something you’d like to have read, please email thedctteam@campustheatre.com  a couple of weeks in advance, if possible.

 

DCT Roadshow

DCT RoadShow actors perform Story Theatre for young audiences in the Denton area. They are led by Julie Brinker, DCT Outreach Director, who holds an MFA in Theatre with an emphasis in Child Drama. What is Story Theatre? It is a performance format that combines storytelling and traditional theatre performance. A (traditionally) small, flexible cast narrates and acts out several stories, songs, and/or poems using puppets, audience participation, and traditional theatrical conventions. The result is a fast-moving and excitingly interactive experience for both audience and actors. Set, costumes and props are minimal.

The troupe is working on this year’s theme of On Your Mark, Get Set, Read.  They perform at Denton rec centers, libraries, and day care facilities.  For more information, contact Julie Brinker at thedctteam@campustheatre.com.  She has office hours at the Campus Theatre on Fridays only and will respond to inquiries at that time.
