Welcome to LAUNCH PAD!
Please visit our 2017 Summer Reading Series page for information about our upcoming FREE readings!
We started this program in 2005, and are proud to have supported so many great playwrights and plays on their journey from incubation to professional world premiere! The concept of the “Preview Production” is unique in American theater: a fully realized production of a new play without the pressures of the commercial world, the play stays in previews throughout the run of the show, allowing the writer to continue revising as the piece evolves through performance.
We are excited to have you join us for these fresh, provocative, entertaining new plays! Be there from the beginning, and you can say “Hey! I saw that play at UCSB before anyone else.”
- Risa Brainin, Artistic Director
