I intend to workshop and produce Quetzal in Harrisburg, PA, where I have many contacts in theatre.
I will need to start adding music soon. I can write lyrics and compose it myself, but I much prefer to go with a separate composer and possibly a separate lyricist. I will probably create sketches of songs.
Either before or after the first set of songs, I plan a read-through, on Zoom, with local Harrisburg actors. I play to record this to show to potential directors, collaborators and donors.
One or more rewrites will probably come next.
Next step is workshopping some scenes. I am hoping to have a director on board by then.
Cannot plan much farther ahead than that. The show will probably look much different by then.
Working on a complete revision prompted by notes from Cheryl Coons, my Dramatists Guild mentor. Act I is outlined. Scenes 1-3 are written.
Working on the website. Adding in the suggestions from the writers' group, which were excellent .
First draft of this website is done. Will present to my writers group this afternoon
Finished second complete revision of script. Shortened opening scenes to try to get more of the particulars of the story, characters, motivations out in the first ten minutes.
