Montana Repertory Theatre Offers Women Creating Theatre Program, Colony 19: 7/12 - 7/19

We're excited about this opportunity to focus on the feminine and to offer time, space, and resources to the gender long underappreciated in the world of theatre.

Three noted playwrights- Deb Laufer, Molly Rice, and Julia Jordan-will lead the Colony along with Salina Chatlain, who has produced the Colony for the past two years.They'll be joined by other women producers, dramaturgs, and directors.

Eight days of writing, laughing, listening, floating, hiking, and learning--an immersion into the creative writing process for stage and screen.
