About Meetinghouse Theatre Lab
The Meetinghouse Theatre Lab is dedicated to creating an ensemble of performance artists who come together to excite the senses, push the limits, and transform the definition of create with the aim of growing as performers and enriching the humanity of all involved.
Since 2003 the Theatre Lab has presented readings, staged readings, and full productions, both classic and contemporary, that challenge accepted social norms and values, question reality, break down the “fourth wall”, explore the notion of “truth”. It is dedicated to creating a yearly ensemble of performance artists who come together to excite the senses, push the limits, and explore the definition of “create” with the aim of growing as performers and enriching the humanity of all involved.
Out of the Hat!
What’s “Out of the Hat!”? It’s a fresh, compact production with a rehearsal time of one day, 7 hours, performed that same night. The play, the director, the cast are all picked “out of the hat” so to speak — this makes it fresh and exciting for all!
It goes like so … we gather at noon to read the chosen play — many of us for the first time. After a first read, the director for the play retires to cast the show. Once done, the group works to put the play on its feet with the result being an outstanding and very fresh performance at 7pm.
Come to read and play at 12pm or come to watch at 7pm.
Interested in reading? We would love to have you! To read, you will need yourself, writing utensils, blacks, a potluck, energy and a penchant for fun. Please message Meetinghouse Theatre Lab or email Cynthia at [email protected] if you would like to be a part of the day’s production to make sure there is room.
Join us in the audience and spread the word to your friends, too! Admission is free, although donations are gratefully accepted 🙂
Our “Out of the Hat!” readings are on the 3rd Saturday of each month from November through June, so be sure to save the dates on your calendar.
