According to a news release, The Emergence Project was conceived for Clark Youth Theatre by Julie Tattershall and George Romero as an undertaking to develop the artistic skills and talents of Tulsa-area youth. By handing over the reigns of writing, directing, and other production aspects of The Emergence Project, it is hoped to see local artists flourish in a new way. Dates for the production are at 7:30 p.m. June 3-5, 2010 and 2 p.m. June 6.
Clark Theatre, 4825 S. Quaker in Tulsa, OK, is seeking writers and directors ages 12-18 for this production. Playwrights should submit a piece 10-20 minutes in length, which would require minimal sets, props and lighting. Directors are asked to submit an application stating their goals for the production, as well as any skills they think they could bring to the project. Up to six one-act plays and directors will be chosen for this production.
Advising on this project is George Romero, an experienced local director, actor, and arts educator currently serving as the president of the Heller Theatre Council. The deadline for submission is Feb. 28, 2010. Plays and applications should be submitted via e-mail to email@example.com.
