CAMERAderie: Act One Celeb Table Read

Nov 14 | 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm PST

Our CAMERAderie: Act One writers have worked diligently to deliver beautifully crafted and unique stories. We are especially proud of the work that has come about due to the workshops and mentorship that are integral to this initiative. We cannot wait to hear their ten minute short scripts read out loud at our Virtual CAMERAderie: Act One Celeb Table Read.

The six Finalist Scripts will be read by established actors who are graciously supporting this initiative’s mission. Our goal is to lift these writers up, propel them on their journey to tell their stories, and foster successful careers.
