Studio 801 is Arena Players’ training and community outreach program. It consists of adult classes for those who have a desire to perform. Established to enhance the Arena Players’ unique style and to extend creative arts training and resources to the general public. Directing, acting, stage management, and technical classes are offered.
The Readers’ Theatre is a unique program that allows playwrights to develop their work in a safe, nurturing environment. Playwrights are invited to have their works read on stage without props or action from the actors. The actors read from the script, in character, and a narrator describes the action for the audience. At the end of the reading, the audience is invited to discuss the play with the playwright, providing positive and constructive feedback to strengthen the literary work. It also gives the community an opportunity to be a part of the Arena Players’ theatrical offerings. Some plays produced in the Readers’ Theatre are invited to be staged during the Arena Players’ season.
