Westchester Collaborative Theater (WCT) Presents Hudson Valley New Voices Festival A Three-part Series from May 20 through June 20
June 20 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm$15
Ossining, NY –From May 20 through June 20 Westchester Collaborative Theater (WCT) is presenting its inaugural Hudson Valley New Voices (HVNV) Festival, a trio of programs showcasing new works by new voices – young people, seniors, and persons of color.
Voices of Color will feature works from several established Hudson Valley Playwrights of Color in addition to plays by emerging writers. “We are grateful to have the opportunity to present the work of writers with a range of backgrounds and experiences” says co-producer Melissa Nocera. “WCT is committed to welcoming theater artists from the BIPOC community to be part of our play development process. Diversity is key to the future of theater, and it is essential that we offer a home for writers of color to make work that is important to them. These plays are funny and touching, some realistic, some absurd. We are hopeful that this inaugural festival will become a must-submit and must-see event for theater makers and audiences throughout the Hudson Valley.”
Co-producer Misha Templar Sinclair says, “I am beyond thrilled to be a participant in presenting some of the new works from diverse voices at the Westchester Collaborative Theater.”
Voices of Color will be broadcast Friday, June 18 and Saturday, June 19 at 8 pm and on Sunday, June 20 at 3 pm.
