Event description
Over the Bridge Arts presents FIRST DRAFT

About this event

FIRST DRAFT opens with artists from Echo Theatre, including Kateri Cale, Chad Cline, and Leslie Patrick, reading opening scenes from selected entries to their “Big Shout Out 3 - International New Play Contest for Women+ Playwrights.” Hot off the printer, these First Draft appetizers will leave audiences hungry for the main course! The contest winner will be produced by Echo Theatre in 2022, and the Finalist Honorees will be presented in Echo’s staged reading series, Echo Reads.

In our second half, “The Pollinators” is an original satirical musical that deals with authoritarian hot head characters who would flaunt science, undermine progress and commit unlawful acts. It’s under the helm of writer/spoken word artist CJ Critt, who has been creating stage works, audio books, music, and stand up poetry in Dallas for 30 years. “The Pollinators” is a multi-generational creative project with four contributing composers, and a diverse cast including Christian Joelle, Steven Smith, and Braden Socia. With an engaging pop and rock score from area jazz artist Rebecca Cordes, podcast wizard Morgan Clarke, composer John Prestiani, and seasoned tunesmith Barry Young, the script is both hilarious and tender as love triumphs and the bees prevail.

FIRST DRAFT is supported by the Communities Foundation of Texas and hosted by The Wild Detectives in Oak Cliff, Dallas.
