In 2016-2017 GREAT introduced a brand new "Script In Hand Series" to create more performance and directing opportunities for local artists and introduce audiences to new plays. Funding was provided by the Central Minnesota Arts Board. Stay tuned for 2017-2018 "Script In Hand" opportunities.
What is "Script In Hand?" It is a full "reading/performance" of a play that the actors are allowed to have their scripts in their hands (or the scripts could be on music stands) so they are not memorized. The director of each show will create blocking, use of limited costumes, props and sound effects to create a performance experience for the audience.
This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Central MN Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
