Brazosport Center Stages is excited to launch its first-ever Original Documentary Project! Come join us for one of our information sessions to learn more! Sessions are Sunday, Tuesday, & Wednesday, September 11, 13, & 14, at 7:00 PM.
What is Documentary Theatre?
Broadly conceived, documentary theatre is fact-based performance composed using archival materials such as trial transcripts, official or government documents, iconic visual images or video footage, newspaper reporting, historical writing and recorded interviews. Documentary performances often emerge in response to social or political crises; documentary playwrights offer their audiences a theatrical presentation of real events to inspire critical questions about history, memory and justice as well as provoke social action to change the world outside the theater walls.
What are the casting needs?
Director Bobby Britton Jr. is looking to cast 12-16 diverse and dynamic storytellers. Using the techniques of Documentary Theatre, participants will spend the 2022-2023 season creating a performance piece that will be presented as part of the 2023-2024 season.
What are the requirements?
Participants must be at least 14 years of age and commit to bi-weekly meetings. Please come to the information session with a device that can capture voice recordings (most cellular phones can do this) and wear comfortable shoes and clothes.
