For the second year in a row, the Dane County Public Libraries will host several play club meetings in conjunction with each Forward Theater show. It's fun and easy to take part: just sign up at a participating library to attend the meeting, check out a script and study guide at your library when they arrive, and then head to your library for the discussion. The conversation will be led by a Forward Theater Company artist, and scenes from the play will be read aloud by Forward Theater actors.

Also back by popular demand is the Library Monologue Series, which features performances from our previous monologue festivals by Forward Theater artists, followed by a talkback.

Dates and times for the Play Clubs and Monologue Series are currently being planned. Please check back later this summer to get all the details about where to catch these fun programs in action. And if you would like your branch of the public library to host one of these events, please let them (and us) know!

Forward Theater Play Clubs in the Library are a part of the From Page to Stage program, which is possible thanks to Beyond the Page, Madison Community Foundation, Dane Arts Commission and the Wisconsin Humanities Council.
