New Plays By UMass Dartmouth Students To Be Presented At The Reading Stage

The Reading Stage is a presentation of readings of new ten-minute plays by dramatic writing students at UMass Dartmouth. Readings will take place on December 3 & 5th at 6pm in Room 205 of the Claire T Carney Library on the UMass Dartmouth campus.

The Reading Stage, which began as a program with New African Company in Boston back in the 1990s was brought to UMass Dartmouth in 2010 by Associate English Professor Mwalim (Morgan James Peters) as a service learning activity in arts and civic dialogue, in cooperation with the Leduc Center for Civic Engagement. Students collaborate with directors and actors to develop and present public readings of their original ten-minute plays. Arts & Civic Engagement is a service learning curriculum developed by Mwalim, based on the Federal Theatre Project of the 1930's.
