DSA Scene Reads

DSA Scene Reads Information In-Person & Zoom Format
KD Studios† and Zoom will host the monthly DSA Scene Reads on Tuesday 31 May. Casting starts at 6:30 pm. Readings start at 7:00.
Zoom registration for the Zoom aspect of the Scene Reads is open now using this link. Registering for a previous Zoom Scene Reads will *not* yield access to this Scene Reads.
To have maximum actor participation in the readings (in-person plus via Zoom), use the DSA website Scene Reads Uploads page to upload your ten pages of script. Scripts that are not sent to the Scene Reads Uploads page with be read last. For best results, the uploading of scripts should be completed by 6:00 pm on Monday, 30 May.
Screenwriters who travel to KD Studios should bring sufficient printed scripts for use by the actors who also attend in-person. Screenplays presented only as printed scripts and not uploaded to the website may be read last (with no participation by the Zoom actors).
All participating screenwriters, actors, and scripts must be available for casting no later than 6:40 pm.
Using the Scene Reads Uploads page,
• A Scripts For Tonight page will be prepared to allow downloading of Scene Reads scripts by the actors who attend via Zoom.
• Scripts prepared in this manner also will be projected at KD Studios so that the
in-person actors will have equal access to the material to be read.
• Only those who register for the Zoom Scene Reads will be told how to access the Scripts For Tonight page for Zoom readings, and the page will vanish in a puff of electronic smoke as soon as the Scene Reads ends.
If time permits, PDF files will be highlighted to identify individual characters for the actors before they are added to the Scripts For Tonight page. As an example, two pages of highlighted script have been made available on an Example Downloads Page on the DSA website.
Guest audience members are always welcome register for the Zoom Scene Reads or attend the Scene Reads at KD Studios. Even if you don’t have a script to be read, join in as a visitor (whether you are a DSA member or not). Screenwriters cannot tell if their material is achieving its intended results without audience participation.
Remember, only DSA members can submit scripts to the Scene Reads. So, if you are not a 2022 DSA member… Join Now, or bring your credit card to KD Studios.
