Theatre Folk- A 21st Century Play Publisher

Theatrefolk understands the needs of Theatre teachers in the 21st century.  Teachers are able to decide what format you would like the script- traditional book form or  a downloadable pdf file.  If you are producing the play then you can purchase the photocopy rights to distribute the script to the cast and crew.  You can read the play now, so you don't have to wait a week for it to be delivered. 

I appreciate that Theatrefolk has chosen secure pdf as file format so it can be read on different readers not just an i-Pad.  I encountered  this problem with another publisher this summer in selecting my fall show.  The playwright's website said read on your I-Pod, I-Pad or on your computer with I-Tunes.  I do not own any Apple products and was not able to read the play after I had bought it.

Theatrefolk offers more than just scripts, but other resources for Theatre teachers.  Ever thought about teaching playwriting, they have two new resources that will help student create original scripts.  

Theatrefolk also is very adept at using social media on their website they have a blog with videos, a new podcast, and free stuff.  Be sure to check them out.  

If you are organizing a Thespian Festival or a Theatre teacher conference,  Theatrefolk presents great workshops that help teachers and students explore the playwriting process.
