Via Quickies Facebook – “We are seeking a variety of actors for our tenth annual short play festival featuring original works by local authors. Both veterans and newcomers are encouraged to audition.
Performances will be April 12, 13, 18, 19, 20 at 8 pm. Because the plays are short, the rehearsal schedule will not be as lengthy as for a full-length show, but it is still a commitment.Rehearsals for each play will be scheduled with the director, usually once a week. Mandatory group rehearsals will be March 25 and April 1, and tech week is April 8-11.
Here are the plays:
