Five plays receive recognition through the MainStage series.  Playwrights receive a dedicated staged reading and publication in The GPTC Reader, an anthology published annually by Metropolitan Community College for educational use and public purchase.

Staged readings of MainStage scripts are presented throughout the Conference, with feedback given by our panel of GPTC Featured Artists as well as other theatre artists and general public in attendance.

All readings are free and open to the public.
