Learn the craft of writing for the stage and come see a showcase of local authors

Have you always wanted to write a stageplay, to have it performed in front of an audience. Well, here is your chance. Join us for the 2024 BFACT Writers Workshop on Jan 30 and 31 at 7pm on the Belle Fourche Rec Center Auditorium Stage. Come for two days of workshops with published author Derek Olson, whose scripts have been performed in Belle Fourche, Lead and as far away as England. The workshops will focus storytelling for the stage, basic mechanics of stage plays, correct formatting, and more. If you have a script you have already started, bring the first ten pages with you. You can get specific critiques on it that you can take away and work on after the workshop concludes.

Then on Feb 1 at 7pm we will hold a public showcase of your scripts. BFACT actors will read cuttings from each show to a public audience. This is a very unique opportunity that can be hard to come by for new authors. Best of all, this whole event is FREE!

If you wish to participate in the Writers Workshop email [email protected] or call 605-645-3255 to sign-up. If you are interested in being an actor for the showcase, please contact Derek as well either by email or phone. If you want to watch the show, just show up on Feb 1 at 7pm!
