YOUR BRILLIANT CAREER
with Mead Hunter
Saturday, July 16th
Tried, true, and out-of-the-blue strategies for jump-starting your career in today's competitive market. Bring pen and paper and come prepared to participate--this ain't no lecture.

Saturday, July 23rd
Methods of adapting memory, both cultural and personal, for the stage. Participants are encouraged to bring scenes and monologues from works-in-progress.
DIRECTING OR DETECTING: AND THE SCENE OF THE CRIME
with Rose Riordan
Sunday, July 24th
I posit the theory that being a director is like being a detective. Always trying to figure out why this or that happened and reconstructing events for a "dramatic re-enactment." Director and PCS Associate Artistic Director Rose Riordan will present the "scene of the crime" and with your help walk you through the how it all really happened.
If you are unable to participate in the labs, please join us for public readings during the festival on July 16th & 17th and July 21st-24th. Visit our website for the full schedule!

Packed with over 25 songs, including such legendary favorites as “Piece of My Heart,” “Me and Bobby McGee,” and “Mercedes Benz”—and the world premiere of an unrecorded song written for Janis—this is Janis Joplin’s musical journey presented in a powerful and immediate form.
