The Monday Night Play Space
Since 2016 Dragon Productions Theatre Company has hosted the Monday Night Play Space Series. Two Mondays a month (when we can) Dragon opens its doors to local artists to use the space for anything, including staged readings of new plays, local film screenings, poetry slams, stand up comedy, improv demos, books readings, movie screenings, and anything else that the Bay Area artistic community comes up with! It's a great way to see something different and new right here on the Peninsula. You can either reserve a seat in advance for $10 or pay what you will in cash at the door the night of the show. We'll have concessions available so it will be a fun night at the theatre and a great way to meet local artists, share in the creative process, mingle with the community, and support local theatre. Are you an artist? Go to the performer section for details, dates, and the signup form.
All performances start at 7:30p and the doors open at 7p at the Dragon Theatre in downtown Redwood City. You can either reserve a seat in advance for $10 or pay what you will in cash at the door the night of the show. Suggested minimum donation of $5 - $10. Concessions will be available for purchase to enjoy during the show.

As a performer, there's no cost to you but we do need to get some details and book you into a time slot. Please be aware of the following:
- You are responsible for casting your show/reading.
- Please note that this is NOT an opportunity to fully produce a new play or musical with a set. There may be a Dragon set already on the stage so we'll be closing the mid-stage curtain to give you the front of the stage as a performance space.
- You can enter the building at 6p on the night of for set up and a quick walkthru of the performance. We unfortunately cannot accomodate other rehearsal time.
- The doors open for the audience at 7p and the show starts at 7:30p on a Monday night so make sure that your work schedule and traffic accomodate this.
The dates for the 2019 Series are:
