ORGANIZATION: The Pulp Stage Theatre Company

  • 2 people are interested

The Pulp Stage theatre company is seeking wonderful new voices for our volunteer corps. Specifically, we are looking for help in any of the following areas

-Reviewing the work of playwrights in consideration

-Acting in and/or facilitating table-reads of the playwrights’ work

-Researching trends in both live theatre and home entertainment

-Researching and reaching out to companies with whom we might have a kinship.

WHAT IS THE PULP STAGE?

We are a reader's theatre company, specializing in

1) genres that are popular in TV & Film: Science Fiction, Fantasy, Adventure, Mystery, Horror and more.

2) original scripts that are built to just be read aloud.

Essentially, the live theatre that we create is a modern version of campfire storytelling! For an example of what this looks like in action, have a look at this video highlighting one of our previous projects. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WKzC0L9JHos&t=55s

WHO ARE WE REACHING OUT TO?

We are passionate about serving the widest range of communities. A key way to do this is to diversify our voices. Right now, we're looking to expand the amount of voices from BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) communities in our volunteer base.

WHAT KIND OF MISSION ARE YOU SERVING?

Being part of The Pulp Stage Volunteer Corps means taking part in shaping the future of a theatre company that has a track-record of collaborative service. Our easy-to-produce and popular-genre work has created theatre experiences with

*young students

*senior citizens

*first-time performers, seeking encouragement

*seasoned actors and directors seeking more opportunities to hone their craft

*Sci-fi and Fantasy fans, new to playgoing

*novelists and story writers, new to playwriting

*playwrights seeking more development and production opportunities

*individuals with mobility challenges

*individuals with memory challenges

*individuals who are neurodivergent (working with conditions such as autism and ADHD)

*audiences needing to access theatre remotely

*populations experiencing homelessness

*non-traditional venues such as households, libraries, bars, restaurants... even office spaces!
