PUT YOUR WORDS on stage at All Writers Workshop June 1

Put your words on stage!

WAUKESHA –  The 10-minute play is no longer a fad.  It is considered a legitimate form of theatre that has proven highly popular with audiences around the world.  The compact form forces playwrights to get the story moving quickly and keep dramatic tension tight.  It also helps when writing full-length plays to form concise scenes within acts.  For the playwright, 10-minute plays are FUN to write!

Join us on June 1 for a one-day workshop, Enter Laughing (or Crying), with playwrights Gail Sterkel and Kathleen Allison Johnson, to learn about writing the short play.  Leave the workshop with new ideas and material to spark your creative fire!

GAIL STERKEL has written numerous ten-minute plays and monologues that have been produced on various Madison stages.  In addition, Gail’s one-act play, “Lust Through Infiniti,” was a finalist in the New Jersey Rep’s Seven Deadly Sins contest.  Gail currently teaches writing at Madison College; she has taught an abundant number of creative writing classes and workshops for the UW and other venues. Gail is currently writing a “how to” book on ten minute plays.

KATHLEEN ALLISON JOHNSON has had ten plays produced on various Madison stages.  Her full-length play, The Eleventh Hour, was a semi-finalist for the Panowski Playwriting Award.  Her short stories, non-fiction, and poetry have appeared in magazines including American Heritage, Kaleidoscope, The Journal of Irreproducible Results, and Rosebud.  Kathleen has degrees in math and English.  She has written a novel and is currently at work on her second.

Together, Gail and Kathleen are delighted to announce that their collaborative full-length play, Ten Thousand Moons From Here, will be produced by Kathie Rasmussen Women’s Theatre of Madison, on the stage of the Bartell Theatre in Madison, June 2013. 

This class will be held at AllWriters’ Workplace & Workshop, 234 Brook Street, Unit 2, Waukesha, WI, on Saturday, June 1, from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.  The cost for this event is $85, and includes lunch.  You can register by calling 262-446-0284 or online at www.allwriters.org, click on Celebrity Saturdays.
