Congratulations to Players Follies Play Reading Selections
Nov. 19 at 8 p.m. and Nov. 20 at 2 p.m., join The Players Follies and witness brand new plays ranging from one minute monologues to 10 minute scenes performed in readers’ theatre format. Eleven carefully chosen short plays will grace the stage for the first time in the intimate Backstage black-box theatre. This year, applicants were giving the open theme “The Fabric of Our Lives” and each writer artfully crafted their tales to reflect that topic. Tickets for each show are $12.
The Players Follies is a 50 + performing troupe who represent The Players Theatre throughout the community and on the mainstage of the theatre as a seasoned wing of the arts organization, with several staged productions. The Follies also serves as an outreach performing troupe to bring live entertainment to those who cannot travel to theatres. With so many performance opportunities, this troupe is an excellent outlet for performers to gain camaraderie, support and the chance to express themselves theatrically…and you can join this active and vibrant group! The group is in its sixth year as a part of the Players Theatre and is open to anyone who has an interest in singing, dancing and/or acting. Rehearsals take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1:00-3:00pm. The Players Follies Season runs September, 2016 – April 2017. However, it is still possible to join mid-season! Come attend the Play Reading and see what they’re all about!
