Annual Greenhouse Theatre Festival Brings Scripts to Life

Wednesday, April 20, 2016
GOLDEN GATE XPRESS -- Greenhouse, an annual festival held since 1999, is the culmination of the hard work and dedication of students in the theatre production class taught by faculty advisor and creative writing lecturer Anne Galjour. Playwrights had to submit their pieces, and the top plays were selected. The course works toward producing the festival, with master classes to teach how to progress as a playwright in the real world, according to Galjour. “In a nutshell, this class is a bridge in between everything you’re learning here in your academic environment, and just the reality of trying to cobble together a living as an artist,” Galjour said. She noted each play receives help from professional directors and actors as well as student actors to strengthen ties with the surrounding theater community.
