Each year a reading committee selects a vibrant collection of member scripts to be produced in our annual June showcase. These new short plays include comedies and dramas, directed and performed by talented local artists, including many from our Actors-in-Residence.

Audience members participate in the festivities by voting for their favorite plays and actors after each performance. Our festival culminates in a popular Awards Ceremony where we honor Audience Choice for Best Actor, Best Actress,  Best Director and for each series. We sell out, so get your tickets early!
