The Community Theatre Festival is a showcase for community theatre—a chance for scores of actors and off-stage production volunteers to perform beyond their usual home audience, to rub shoulders with and learn from one another and get constructive feedback. Performers will be given helpful adjudication. Participants will be presented with participation award mementoes.

Last year hundreds of audience-people dropped in, commonly to watch two or three of the seven performances—a fine mix of slapstick, intense drama, legend, musical, an original work in French, even some improv.

Now is the time organizers are inviting amateur (for-the-love-of-it) theatre groups to express interest and get working on a play. What’s wanted are short plays or excerpts—no more than a half-hour—of any kind: comedy, quasi-improv, gripping drama, mystery, slice-of-life, political satire, musical, romance, family-friendly or avant-garde/mature. Mentoring guidance is available on request. It is also be an opportunity to preview or reprise a show in development for another presentation.
