Playing French Seattle 2010

Plans are now underway for our next festival of plays in French.  I hope you can participate in 2010. Beginning on Monday, September 27th we will meet weekly each Monday, starting at 6 pm, at University Heights (University Way and 50th) to read and select scripts, audition, cast and rehearse the shows and readings.
On the table right now are fifteen short plays and adaptations found in a 1919 anthology by Victor E. Francois, thus the working theme of the festival "Fifteen Plays in Fifteen Days!"  The last play in this little book is an adaptation of Molière's "Le Médecin Malgré Lui," (see character list below) to be followed by a new one act ("...Malgré Lui") presently in draft.

If you would like to work on this year's festival, as an actor, crewperson, supertitler, box office worker, usher, marketer, or otherwise volunteer, please come to the first meeting on Monday, September 27th at 6 pm (University Heights Center, room 109).
I will be in travelling through the south of France from September 12th - 23rd, so I may be a little slow in responding to messages, but please be assured that there's still lots of room for fresh talent and ideas!
I hope you will contact me with suggestions and to confirm your participation.
à bientôt,
Tom Ansart, Producer
Steeplechase Productions/Playing French Seattle
