LiveRead@SDA is a developmental reading series produced by the USC School of Dramatic Arts and was launched to cultivate and provide critical support for the creation of innovative and contemporary new works for the American theatre.

Professional artists are invited to weeklong workshop residencies on the USC campus, where they can take bold steps towards refining their work with an incredibly diverse talent pool. The School of Dramatic Arts provides the necessary resources and staff to produce a concert-style reading in one of our campus theatre venues with professional photography and video of the performance.

LiveRead@SDA affords students an invaluable opportunity to work with industry leaders—producers, directors, playwrights, lyricists, composers and choreographers—while gaining insights and practical experience in what it means to intensively workshop new musicals headed toward commercial production.

Deadline: September 1
