Culture Shock

By Amy Dalness

Playwrights and Caffeine

The Albuquerque Little Theatre begins its Studio Series on Saturday, Nov. 10, with staged readings of work by local playwrights Walter L. Newton, Edith Weiss, Robert F. Benjamin, Elaine Jarvik and Scott Bison. The Studio Series is a program offered by ALT to local writers for the development of new dramatic scripts through workshops, readings and performances. The staged reading will start at 7 p.m. and last around two hours including an intermission (with complimentary coffee and cookies) and a talk back with the actors and directors. As any writer knows, audience feedback is essential to creating a successful product, so don't be afraid to chime in with the good and the bad. The event is free for ALT members and ticket holders to previous shows or $5 at the door. Call 242-4750 for more info.
