How we decide on our seasons...
CCTL Play Reading Committee
and The Virtual Pandemic PRC
Our Play Reading Committee reads a minimum of 30 plays a season. Sounds a bit crazy doesn't it? But that is how seriously we take our group.
We know that our patrons want quality productions. We strive to bring our audience productions we can be proud of.
Our seasons are chosen by the CCTL PRC. We narrow down our selections bit by bit until we have 3-5 shows. We present the finalists to the Board of Directors for approval. If approved we have a season. If not, we go back to the drawing board and figure out another set.
The Virtual Pandemic PRC is a separate play reading committee that reads the home grown writings of Colorado playwrights. These dedicated people decide which plays get a chance to be produced for our YouTube channel. This is not always an easy task and as usual still needs to be approved by the Board of Directors.
The Front Range Playwright's Showcase Reading Committee is often comprised of people from both committees.
