Emerging Voices, TheatreOne’s exciting series of staged readings, features new, never-before-performed plays by local and regional playwrights. Each of the three scripts selected annually is workshopped by professional actors with the support of local playwright and dramaturge Nicolle Nattrass and then presented to the public in a reading that same evening.
Emerging Voices is a hidden gem, winning plaudits from enthusiastic audiences and providing emerging writers an exceptional opportunity to see their play workshopped and then performed for the first time in public, receiving invaluable feedback from actors, dramaturge and audience members alike.
We are already in the process of soliciting scripts for our 2021 series, which will take place at the Port Theatre from January through March of next year.
