HAMILTON-GIBSON WOMEN'S PROJECT "A CHANGE OF SCENERY"

For the third year in a row, the Hamilton-Gibson Women's Project is offering free workshops and read-arounds to women with an opportunity to have works performed on stage.
Lilace Guignard and Linda Iseri are co-producing this year’s project, “A Change of Scenery.” “For our October production, our goal is to have a weekend of women-directed adapted scenes or short original one-acts that take the audience through a variety of well-known stories from a gender-bender angle," said Guignard.

"We are hoping for a good mix of comedy, absurd, farcical and realistic drama. The selected adaptations and originals will be memorized, staged and performed,” she added.

During the free workshops in February and read-arounds in March and April, women will explore how the gender of actors and characters affects classic scenes and why directors and writers choose to change familiar stories.

The workshops and read-arounds will also prepare participating writer-directors to submit proposals for an adaptation of an existing work and/or a new script to be considered for the production.

Women who want to write or do an adaptation but not direct are responsible for finding someone willing to direct their work.

Those who only want to act are also encouraged to register for the workshops and read-arounds though the focus is on women who want to take on the writing-directing challenge.

The "Interpretation/Adaptation: Why & How" Workshop will be offered twice in the Gallery at the Warehouse Theatre at 3 Central Avenue in Wellsboro. The first time is Wednesday, Feb. 7 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. and the second is Saturday, Feb. 10 from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m.

In this workshop, writer-directors will learn how to choose a scene or monologue from a book or a play that can legally be adapted, or write a short script for a known but unwritten story. Also discussed will be the reasons and purpose for writer-directors to change the genders of characters when doing an adaptation of an already published work.

The "Look, Listen and Learn: Video and Script Excerpts" Workshop will be on Saturday, Feb. 24 from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. at Mansfield University. Registrants will watch and listen to examples of original works and adaptations. They will discuss the affect the changes had on their experience as an audience, whether there was a ripple effect and what ideas the adaptations provided.

The purpose of the read-arounds is to familiarize participants with a variety of script formats and the reasons they work. The read-arounds will be on Wednesday, March 7 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.; Saturday, March 24 from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m.; Thursday, April 5 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.; and Saturday, April 28 from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m., all in the Gallery at the Warehouse Theatre at 3 Central Avenue in Wellsboro.

The submission deadline for adaptations and original works is Tuesday, May 22.

Auditions for selected works will be the week of August 12-16. Performances will be Oct. 18, 19, 20 and 21.
