Exploits on the Hudson Productions
Our newest venture, Exploites on the Hudson Productions is our film and media content producing program. This most recent endeavor was developed in response to the plethora of multi-media, video and film that is being created as stand alone artistic expressions and/or infused into live performance productions. Our HExTC produced media projects seek to offer additional artistic opportunities to artists and further grow our audience through festival participation as well as through You-tube and other online platforms.
Where Theater Starts Reading Series
Where Theater Starts Reading Series serves as our outreach to playwrights. This curated reading series features up to four playwrights per year. The focus is on identifying character-driven plays that can be developed into full productions. HExTC tends to favor works where the “ink is still drying.”
Through this program we seek to work with a select group of talented playwrights who in turn will provide the future content for HExTC’s main-stage productions and media projects. At the core of this program is to form long term relationships with the playwrights featured, effectively offering a legitimate opportunity for a script to move from a reading to full production. Selected plays are featured at a public reading at a NYC venue. HExTC typically pairs up each playwright with a director and assists in casting. HExTC provides rehearsal space and all involved receive a modest stipend for their participation. HExTC looks for dramatic or comedic works and will consider one-act original plays (30-90 minutes, with up to nine characters). Musicals or one-person shows are not considered at this time
