Staged Readings. Original Scripts. Down Cold.

Have a script you want to hear read aloud? Want to work your performance skills through reading scripts cold? Interested in experiencing a creative vibe that’s welcoming and cross-cultural? Scripting Aloud is for you.

We’re a not-for-profit public cold-read script development platform and live staged reading event that helps develop original short- and long- form scripts for multiple channels and platforms — focusing on cross-cultural content, writers, and performers.


Scripting Aloud holds monthly staged reading events seasonally, from fall to spring, and other script and story development events — including workshops, panels, and screenings — in collaboration with partnering and sponsoring organizations.
