Coming Up


Monday, June 27, 2016 is the final production in our 2015-2016 “Bare Bones” staged reading series:   
Charley’s Aunt ’66
by Scott Munson
after Brandon Thomas

Directed by Susan E. Evans

Join us for a work-in-progress reading of Act 1 of Charley’s Aunt ’66 by Scott Munson, a new play after Brandon Thomas’ farce classic. Munson transports the story from the hallowed halls of Oxford to a California college in the psychedelic ’60s. Following the reading, there will be an open feedback session with the playwright, director and actors.
One night only:
Monday, June 27, 2016   8:00pm

5th Annual Playwrights’ CageMatch

The Douglas Morrisson Theatre’s
Fifth Annual Playwrights’ CageMatch.

Our CageMatch is a chance for playwrights to show their stuff in an audience-decided live competition.

Five Playwrights enter but only one will emerge victorious. Grand prize for the chosen script.

Town Square

Our theme this year:

The setting is a town square in a small town anywhere in the universe. It’s where Main Street meets First Street – perhaps there’s a little park, or a statue of a forgotten General, probably a few pigeons. Time period is not restricted. We looked for creative and elegant back-stories that incorporate the setting into the scenes. Tone, theme or genre is up to the playwright! A parade, a lovers’ tryst, or a protest, perhaps? Anything can happen in the town square.

One night only:

Monday, June 13  at 8:00pm

The finalists:

  • HEMLOCK MARTINI by Seth Freeman
  • IS THIS SEAT TAKEN? By Brad Sytsma- WINNER (Yes, there was a tie!)
