SpringBoard features staged readings of new scripts by local writers and work that is under consideration for future production. The SpringBoard series places a special emphasis on developing directors for new work, nurturing strong relationships between directors and playwrights, and engaging the audience in the process. SpringBoard is NOT actors standing at music stands. This work is up on its feet with the excitement of innovation and invention in action. Audience members give feedback and engage in post-show discussions to help shape the future of these high-potential endeavors.
