      Hamilton-Gibson Women's Project presents

      Woodpecker Lips

      HG Women’s Project 2021 Performance and Workshop Series

      We are excited to announce plans for the 2021 Hamilton-Gibson Women’s Project!

      The goal of the 2021 HG Women’s Project, Woodpecker Lips, is to provide opportunities for women (including those who don’t identify as male) to write, perform, direct, and to tell local stories that will be meaningful to our audiences. The performances will include a collection of original monologues of varying lengths. Each monologue will be about a living or historical local/Pennsylvania woman. Our project’s title, Woodpecker Lips, is inspired by the phrase “She’s tougher than Woodpecker Lips!”

      All levels of experience are welcome to participate. Guidance and mentorship will be provided for writers and directors throughout the process via workshops. The project will culminate in a weekend of storytelling and entertainment at The Warehouse Theater in Wellsboro.

      Director’s Workshop:

      Saturday June 26
      10am - 1pm
      Warehouse Theatre, 3 Central Avenue, Wellsboro

      This is a FREE workshop with Jessie Thompson for adult women who would like to direct an original monologue about a Local/Pennsylvania woman for this year’s HG Women’s Project, Woodpecker Lips. These pieces have been created by women in our local community over the past few months through this year’s writing workshops with writing mentor Lilace Guignard. There are 13 directing spots available and the Directors Workshop is open to first-timers as well as anyone with directing experience. We will cover some practical aspect of organizing the process as well as talk about working with actors and creating your vision for the piece.
