Since 2016 Dragon Productions Theatre Company has hosted the Monday Night Play Space. Two Mondays a month (when we can) Dragon Productions Theatre Company opens 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, and anything else that the Bay Area artistic community comes up with! You need to workshop a new script in front of an audience? This is your opportunity! As a performer, there's no cost to you but we do need to get some details and book you into a time slot. Our goal is to provide local artists a venue to safely test run a new work or performance set and connect with some new fans while allowing our community a low cost way to experience new art.
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. This is really intended to workshop a new play with scripts in hand or a new improv set or whatever. Workshop and low tech are the keys here.
- You can enter the building at 6p on the night of your performance for set up and a quick walkthru of the performance. We unfortunately cannot accommodate other rehearsal time.
- We will provide a technician to run lights/sound during the show and to help you get set up for the evening. We will also provide front of house staff to sell tickets and concessions for the show. This event is pay what you will in cash at the door and routinely has pretty solid crowds. Obviously we sell better when you also push the event out to your network of friends and fans.
- 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 accommodate this. The Dragon Theatre is located in downtown Redwood City.

DRAGON and FUSE THEATRES AUDITION INFORMATION
Redwood City Play Festival: Gender Shorts
At Dragon Theatre
Dragon Theatre and Fuse Theatre are looking for a trans woman actress to fill the role of Rosie in Legal-Tender Loving Care, a play by Leanna Keyes, directed by Kieran Beccia. This production is a part of the Redwood City Play Festival produced by Dragon and Fuse.
The Redwood City Play Festival will combine the strengths of both companies to produce one act plays and events centered around a central social justice theme and will highlight local artists. This year’s theme is on gender-based topics, or “Gender Shorts.”
We are having interested actors submit a video audition of a monologue from the play. You can be considered for the role and sent the monologue by contacting Annette Koehn at email@example.com. Please include a headshot and resume.
LEGAL-TENDER LOVING CARE by Leanna Keyes
Rosie, lost at a public transit station, reacts with surprise when a cute young man approaches her and wants to "share his secrets" with her. Realizing that she's being propositioned for the first time, she declines. Jayden is dejected until she says that she'll gladly "share secrets" with him... for a price. The two head to a hotel, and a comedy of errors unfolds; doubly mistaken identities and hidden histories collide as they spar through awkward puns and performance anxiety.
Directed Kieran Beccia
