SCRIPT READING CLUB
Students Carefully Reading Interesting Pieces of Theater (SCRIPT) aims to meet every other Sunday from 5-6pm to read, watch, and listen to pieces created by womxn, people of color, and members of marginalized communities.
We’re really excited about this. But we also know that our activism can’t stop here. Please remember to use your time, money, and other resources to actively contribute to anti-racist efforts.
We hope this will be more than an antiracist book club. We want this to be a sustainable way to give economic support to artists and Black-owned bookstores, and our plans are to codify this book club and its funding into the constitutions of all theatre groups so that this is sustained long after we graduate and this moment passes.
Reach out to Cory Kleinman (cmk140), Jenni Loo (jl2280), or Kellan Oelkers (kbo10) to get involved.
In an effort to educate ourselves and the community, Board 39 has decided to commit to consuming one piece of educational media per week. We encourage you all to read/watch/listen along with us and engage with each other and us about the materials! To view the backlog of materials we have discussed, click here, and don't forget to check back as the year goes on to see what we have looked at each week.
FINAL UPDATE: We raised a total of $1215 for the Black Lives Matter movement, and Georgetown Theatre Alliance matched $1000 in donations, leading to a grand total of $2215 raised! Thank you to everyone who participated and to GTA for taking part in this fundraiser!
Georgetown University’s Black Theatre Ensemble, Mask & Bauble Dramatic Society, and nomadictheatre are raising money to support the Black Lives Matter movement in collaboration with our alumni through the Georgetown Theatre Alliance (GTA). In our continued effort to denounce and combat the systemic racism that pervades our country, our campus, and our theatrical community, we want to facilitate tangible support and action towards the creation of a more just and equitable society. In this spirit, GTA will be matching up to $1000 in donations, total, to either of the following organizations: Showing Up for Racial Justice (SURJ) DC or Black Lives Matter DC.
To participate in this match-campaign, please make a donation to either SURJ DC or Black Lives Matter DC and take a screenshot of your receipt. (Please edit the screenshot to the degree in which you are comfortable sharing information. What’s needed for the campaign is the organization’s name, the date of the donation, and the amount of the donation.) Then, fill out this form by July 10th so that we can compile your donations and track the total for GTA’s match.
Thank you for helping us to stand with the Black community today and every day.
