The Monday Night Play Space
Since 2016 Dragon Productions Theatre Company has hosted the Monday Night Play Space. Two Mondays a month (when we can) Dragon will open its doors to local artists to use the space for anything, including staged readings of new plays, local film screenings, poetry slams, stand up comedy, improv demos, books readings, movie nights curated by the Dragon staff, and anything else that the Bay Area artistic community comes up with! You need to workshop in front of an audience? This is your opportunity! Apply for a performance slot.
We’ll be accepting cash donations from patrons at the door in lieu of a fixed ticket price. We'll have concessions available so it will be a fun night at the theatre and a great way to meet local artists, share in the creative process, mingle with the community, and support local theatre.
All performances start at 7:30p and the doors open at 7p at the Dragon Theatre in downtown Redwood City. Cash only at the door. Suggested minimum donation of $5 - $10. Concessions will be available for purchase to enjoy during the show.
Monday, May 29: 360 Storytelling at the Dragon
A gathering, but without computers, smart phones, what-have-you. And you all tell stories. It’s just that simple, really. Your story can start anywhere, go anywhere. It may be a memory, something you’ve done, someplace you’ve gone. You have six minutes–or 360 seconds–to bring your story full circle. The time limit helps to keep you focused, and also helps to keep the event moving. To kick things off, our theme will be first times, so come join us at the Dragon and tell us a little bit about a first time for you. Led by Caro McDaniels and inspired by 2amt.
Monday, June 12: Romance and Revolution in C: A BattleTale and a screening of Pananampalataya
When she learned of her stage 4 cancer diagnosis, Victoria Ferro was plunged headlong into the biggest battle of her life. How will she survive if three different oncologists already told her she was inoperable, incurable and dying? She somehow lives to tell the tale with a staged reading of selected scenes of a play she has written called Romance and Revolution in C: A BattleTale, and the Bay Area premiere screening of a documentary film called Pananampalataya, the Filipino word for "faith." The film, directed by acclaimed avant garde director Crisanta de Guzman, weaves together fragments of Victoria's journey through 2 years of brutal cancer treatments. The film won the Silver Remi Award at the 2016 Worldfest International Film Festival and the Best Documentary Prize at the 2017 American International Film Festival. After the performance, the floor will be opened up for questions from the audience.
As a performer, there's no cost to you but we do need to get some details and book you into a time slot. You are responsible for casting your show/reading.
