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! Go to the performer section for details, dates, and the signup form.
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, December 11: Walt & Hans are: FRIGID - The Workshop Performance
Walt and Hans Animation Studios presents an epic retelling of a retelling of a fairy tale that was locked up in the freezer with Walt’s body...until now! Now, for the first time ever, without all that silly summer snowmen nonsense; Hans seeks to share his timeless tale of Kai and Gerta with the assistance of his trusty deputy Walt! Will Walt’s old empire strike back? Will there be use of excessive force as our star wars with his dark side? Will we marvel at superheroes in spandex? This winter, Walt and Hans are: FRIGID.
This performance will be a workshop/reading with limited staging, props and costuming. Please note that this show is PG-13.
Monday, January 29: A Staged Reading of a new work by Hilary King
Monday, February 12: A Solo Musical Performance by Matt Herrero
As a performer, there's no cost to you but we do need to get some details and book you into a time slot. Please be aware of the following:
- You are responsible for casting your show/reading.
- Please note that this is NOT an opportunity to fully produce a new play or musical with a set. There may be a Dragon set already on the stage so we'll be closing the mid-stage curtain to give you the front of the stage as a performance space.
- You can enter the building at 6p on the night of for set up and a quick walkthru of the performance. We unfortunately cannot accomodate other rehearsal time.
- The doors open for the audience at 7p and the show starts at 7:30p on a Monday night so make sure that your work schedule and traffic accomodate this.
The dates for the 2018 Series are:
