Hello, OT’ers:

Here is a wonderful opportunity for all of you budding or would-be playwrights out there to flex your creative muscles.  OT will be collaborating with AATP in preparation for the latter’s first annual monologue slam (competition), to be held on November 20th at 8 pm in the CoHo.  The slam itself will feature performances from the 10-minute play “R.A.W.” as well as the presentation of original monologues written by no other than…that’s right…YOU!

OT will be co-hosting a craft seminar with AATP about dramatic writing on the Thursday before the entry deadline.  We will also be posting periodic updates, including advice about monologue-writing, to this blog, so keep checking back for more info!

Here are the rules, courtesy of the AATP’s e-flyer:

“Write a monologue (2 mins max) for you or a friend to perform and compete for awesome prizes to the Stanford Bookstore, Jamba Juice, and the Coho!! Simply sign up, show up, and SLAM!!!

To enter the competition, email kwyoung@stanford.edu by Sunday, November 16, with the following information:

  • Author and performer name
  • The subject and style of monologue
  • (e.g.  My name’s Mitra Tizzles, I’m performing myself, My monologue is a comedy about giant balls…of boba.)

For guidance writing the monologue, visit oceanictongues.stanford.edu [OT’s note: actually, visit the BLOG, not the main web site] or attend one of AATP’s Thursday night acting workshops at 9PM in the A3C Ballroom!”

Happy writing, folks!  Keep ’em coming.

Thanks very much to the awesome actors from the Asian American Theatre Project who came out to help us read-through and workshop our scenes this past Tuesday. We had a blast, and we would love to see you guys at our final reading if you can make it (the group loved you guys; there were many murmurs of “can we please have the actors read our scripts for us at the reading?”)

In other news, we have just finished electing our new officers for the 2008-2009 school year. This coming week, the new board will begin the process of transitioning into their new roles. They are:

Henry Leung, President
Ben-Zhen Sung, Vice President
Atha Fong, Financial Officer
[Calendar Administrator, still TBA].

Congratulations, guys!
