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, for a group of aspiring writers they got there chance on January 30 – February 1. There were 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 focused on storytelling for the stage, basic mechanics of stage plays, correct formatting, and more. Authors got specific critiques on their scripts.

On February 1 there was a public showcase of their scripts. BFACT actors read cuttings from each show to a public audience. This free event was a huge success and hopefully the start of many more workshops to come.
