Be the Playwright and maybe Act as well?!?

LATTE’s accepting YOUR writing submissions for their Original Play, Car Talk Chronicles.

The play will be a series of bite-size vignettes of 5 to 10 minutes. Submissions can be funny, raw, and real  – just like the “slice of life” real conversations that we share in cars! 

Auditions and Practices start in February. Sessions will include: scene development and  dramaturging, a literary, socio-emotional, and cultural analysis, Movement Method synthesis and collaborative critique. Breakout rooms will be used as part of rehearsals. 

This a deep dive into our Movement Method, creating something awesome from nothing, and is an incredible experience no one can ever take away from you, with collaborative learning, on and off the stage lessons, and most of all, FUN!

Memorization of your part is required. Set to be performed on Zoom, prerecorded, or live.

  • Submissions Due  – FEB 1st   
  • Selections Chosen – FEB 7th   
  • Auditions – FEB 7th  on Zoom by Audition slot.

  • 5 – 10-minute vignettes with 1 – 4 characters
  • Rated for all audiences.
  • Written by teens 11 – 19

Adherence to the Actor’s Code is an integral part of LATTE. including no cell phone usage during our virtual rehearsals. Roles may need to be shifted if attendance becomes a consistent issue .

Want to be part of LATTE’s other upcoming production? While we are staying virtual right now, we still have our eye on the goal… to perform Little Women next summer/when it is safe. Our returning teens have led the charge and been part of this planning process. At their request, I have written a new stage version of the book, honoring the original work, yet touching on relevant social themes and adapted for a new generation! The Little Women Production program will span through the fall 2020 and spring/summer 2021 calendar.

For the spring session, Little Women production meetings are planned for 7:30pm-8:30pm Wednesdays, but the schedule is subject to updating.

The Little Women Production is a separate and distinct endeavor running parallel to the Expresso Yourself program. Little Women Production members are encouraged to join their LATTE friends having a great time by registering for the LATTE Expresso Yourself Program !
