Vermont Actors’ Repertory Theatre presents a virtual short play festival via Zoom on Friday, Sept. 11 at 7 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 12 at 7 p.m., and Sunday, Sept. 13 at 2 p.m. The festival is free of charge and open to the public.
Talk backs with playwrights, performers and directors will follow the Saturday and Sunday performances. The Friday performance is a full dress rehearsal. The festival theme is “A New Fabric for Our American Quilt” and features pieces from Vermont playwrights to include: Jeanne Beckwith, MaryBeth McNulty, Pamela Formica, Marisa Valent, and Erica Furgiuele. Their work is fresh and timely, in many cases being performed for the first time here.
The festival coordinator is Alex Nicosia and the September festival is directed by Jaden Rogers and Wendi Stein and stage managed by Ruth Ann Pattee. This festival showcases the talent of over 20 actors and includes locals and performers from across the state. Two more virtual short play festivals are planned for Nov. 13-15 and Feb. 5-7.
