ABOUT ACTING UP!
Acting Up! is an evening of 10 minute unpublished one acts by local and out-of-state playwrights. It is an opportunity for our playwrights to see the final product of their work produced on stage. It is also an opportunity for new directors to take risks in a safe environment while offering experienced directors an opportunity to try their hands at genres they may not normally come across in standard community theatre productions. This is our third year doing this type of production, and we have had huge success!
