WARP is the oldest continuously-running writers' workshop and theatre production group in the Seattle area. Readings of original work are held on most Tuesdays at 7:00 at Stone Soup Theatre, 4029 Stone Way N, Seattle, WA 98103. We produce two shows a year using all-original material by Seattle-area writers. Check the running schedule below for details.
Spring is here!
Here's the schedule for the rest of May. Open stage meetings are for anything you want to bring in and have read, including, but not limited to, pieces that you are considering submitting for the spring show. You can bring in short plays and skits, poems, monologues, ideas for improv - basically anything as long as it's your own original work. Longer scripts (more than 20-25 minutes) can be read by prior arrangement.

PLAYWRIGHT UNDER PRESSURE
The Spring show revived a feature from the days of D.A.M.N., the "playwright under pressure". Every night a different playwright was assigned a surprise topic, and sat at one side of the stage writing a script. At the end of the regular show, the spontaneously created scripts were read and performed by the actors. Fun!
We're almost there, but not quite.
As many of you know, there was a shortfall after the fall show, which was almost covered thanks to two large and very generous contributions from WARP members and a number of smaller contributions at weekly meetings. We continue to accept contributions to cover the shortfall, which is now down to just $62. When you contribute at the Tuesday meetings, any amount over what rent costs goes toward covering the shortfall, and as soon as that is taken care of, any extra will go into a general improvement fund. One thing to think about in future is securing 501c3 non-profit status, which would make contributions tax deductible and allow us to apply for grants. Watch for an announcement about the kickoff of the non-profit status campaign.
