Read A Play With Us!
The Howland Company is proud to host The Reading Group.
Once a month, The Howland Company hosts a free open event called The Reading Group, where artists are encouraged to gather, meet, reconnect and work with fellow members of the Toronto theatre community and ultimately read a play together.
The readings are a laid-back, social way to work with our peers and continue to develop our craft. As always, everything will be provided so all you have to do is show up.
In these challenging, isolating times, more than ever we are craving – connection, inspiration, art, stories, community, SO we have taken The Reading Group ONLINE for the time being.
Join us for our next VIRTUAL session of The Reading Group this Winter:
When: Monday January 25th at 7pm.
Where: WHEREVER YOU ARE with internet access! Join us on ZOOM, a free online video conference site/app where we can VIRTUALLY gather and read a play together. To join us, click on our Reading Group ZOOM event link that will be posted here.
