THE NEW WORKS PROGRAM
Gritty City Repertory Youth Theatre is proud to present a new play development program that champions and highlights the voices of historically marginalized artists in the American Theatre. Through our Staged Reading Series and Table Read Tuesdays, GCRep will feature playwrights of color from Oakland, the greater Bay Area, and beyond, and to develop new scripts that have not yet been produced. With a combination of professional actors and youth ensemble actors as part of the performance company, the Staged Reading Series launched in August 2020, and explores themes of Education, Decolonization, Love, and Juneteenth. Table Read Tuesdays began in September 2020 and are open in terms of theme.
