Posted by Taylor C. Baker

Happy Saturday Stage 32!

Last Friday night, we had the pleasure of hosting a live virtual table read and happy hour. It was a smash-success and brought hundreds of you much needed laughter and community in the time of #SelfQuarantine. Stage 32 is committed to bringing you entertainment, education, and community from the comfort and safety of your own home.

For those of you who missed this online good-time, worry not! We are thrilled to announce you can now download the full table read and cast Q&A on-demand! Our Script Services Coordinator, Nick Assunto, procured an amazing slate of talented and funny actors and Stage 32 members to read his pilot The Conspiracists, a half-hour sci-fi comedy. Download and watch here!

During this exciting virtual event, you get an exclusive look behind the scenes of a professional television table read. Watch as the actors make the script come alive for the very first time. This is a rare opportunity to peel back the curtain go behind the scenes to watch and see a script workshopped directly with professionals.
