"...Among the many annual events on Austin's arts calendar, ScriptWorks' Out of Ink is among the smallest. Each year, in the fall, the playwrights organization offers its members three "ingredients" to include in a script and 48 hours in which to write a play that has all three in them and is no longer than 10 minutes..."
"...The One-Minute Play Festival (1MPF) is the country's largest and longest-running short-form theatre company – boasting 24 national partnerships in 20 cities – and the list of festival alumni reads like a Who's Who of American contemporary theatre. For the second year, 1MPF is partnering with ScriptWorks, the homegrown organization dedicated to the career advancement and artistic growth of playwrights, to create an evening of original one-minute plays for Austin..."
"...FronteraFest, now entering its 23rd year, has become a tradition in Austin's annual arts calendar. For years, Hyde Park Theatre and ScriptWorks' unjuried jamboree of performances has followed the same format: a Short Fringe featuring five short pieces per evening for five weeks; a two-week Long Fringe that offers a handful of one-act and full-length shows; plus some works in unconventional locations, including a full day devoted to such works (Mi Casa Es Su Teatro)..."
"...20, a joint statement from fest co-producers Christina J. Moore of ScriptWorks and Ken Webster of Hyde Park Theatre announced that the 2016 Long Fringe, scheduled for Jan..."
"...Emily Ball Cicchini, who helped found Austin ScriptWorks, called me with a flattering offer: "We're doubling the size of our board. I want you to be on it." I agreed to come to the next meeting, hung up the phone, and strutted around like a god-blessed peacock, not a little gussy, feeling all kinds of wanted..."
"...What do a witch, a parrot, and a bartender all have in common? The first answer is, not much. The second answer is, they're all roles played by one of the actors in Random Acts of Magic, this year's Out of Ink offering from ScriptWorks...."
"...That's the message that comes through again and again in Object Lessons, the 19th edition of ScriptWorks' annual Out of Ink showcase. The eight 10-minute plays presented here may have been penned by different hands, but most toll the same midnight bell..."
"...2) It’s the theatrical version of flash fiction: ScriptWorks presents the 20th annual Out of Ink showcase of 10-minute plays, with a swift array of drama, hilarity, and surprising shenanigans based on three items – one of which is the brain of a deceased president. Eight playwrights, eight directors, many actors, much merriment; and you can catch the locally sourced action onstage at Hyde Park Theatre this weekend...."
"...Christina J. Moore, executive artistic director of the playwright service organization ScriptWorks, helmed the mini-conference, along with performer/producer Jason Phelps and director Derek Kolluri, as the newly formed organization Create Space Austin...."

"..."One of the catchphrases we have for FronteraFest is 'expect the unexpected,' and I think you can say the same thing about Hank," says fest producer and ScriptWorks Executive Director Christina J. Moore..."

"...The reason: The organization is expanding its services to the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, and a quarter of its members are no longer locals. (Many join as university students, then retain their membership when they move to other cities.) ScriptWorks is not only a sleeker moniker but better reflects its status as a national force in theatre..."
"...After the Christmas wrappings are thrown out, the Kwanzaa kente is folded up, the Chanukah dreidel stops its spinning, the Yule log ashes are discarded, the Festivus grievances are aired, and the new year has been rung in, Austin performers and performance enthusiasts gear up for a second round of celebrating and events. January is when Hyde Park Theatre and ScriptWorks' FronteraFest begins, kicking off a month of some of Austin's best fringe theatre, music, choreography, and improv..."
"...Christi Moore is frustrated. It took the ScriptWorks executive director six months of searching to find a venue to rent for Out of Ink, an annual show which will receive its 16th year of production in 2014..."
"...The public is welcome, and admission is free. (Though you're on your own if you call for a round for all those thirsty playwrights.) For more information, call 454-9727 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org...."
