“Propelling Plays Forward”
Introducing the Launch Pad, a free reading series of new plays by Queens playwrights. The mission objective of The Launch Pad is to serve as a testing ground for Queens based playwrights who need to hear their plays out loud. Because Mission to (dit)Mars was co-founded by playwrights and directors, we understand implicitly how to answer those needs. Through this program, the utmost care is taken to foster a safe and productive environment in order to propel the play forward.
We believe artists need a community and communities need artists, and this is where Mission to (dit)Mars comes in, bringing the two together. The Launch Pad Reading Series is a natural extension of this belief and serves as a bold commitment to the artistically vibrant Queens borough.
