Southern California Public Radio (SCPR), which operates 89.3 FM KPCC,
recently moved from its home on the campus of Pasadena City College to the
Mohn Broadcast Center & the Crawford Family Forum in Pasadena, California.
SCPR is embarking on a possible series of live play readings in partnership
with various theatre companies to be performed in the newly opened Crawford
The Crawford Family Forum is a physical manifestation of SCPR’s mission to
strengthen the civic and cultural bonds that unite Southern California’s
diverse communities. The Crawford Family Forum will deepen and expand SCPR’s
role as a centering institution for Southern California by engaging people
of all backgrounds in ongoing, face-to-face conversations and explorations
LATE introduces SCRIPTYARD - a monthly reading series dedicated to the celebration of works by Los Angeles playwrights.
The LATE is looking for work that is original, exciting, and expands our horizons, which is to say, we want to be moved- to tears, to laughter, to a fresh perspective… and we're not afraid of "new". As long as it's got a great story, we want to read it. We are particularly interested in plays with big casts. (Musicals are okay too)
Playwrights interested in working with the LATE Script Yard should submit a cover letter, play synopsis, character breakdown, statement of play's development history, and the first 15-pages of their script to firstname.lastname@example.org
Response time is approx. 2-3 months.
