On Stage Tonight - New Works Festival (Day 2)
A (surprisingly) large crowd turned out last night to enjoy three new one-act plays in the first night of the New Works Festival. More on that later, but here's a reminder that you have two more chances to take part in this celebration.
Tonight you can see a new screenplay, Serious Business, written by T. Michael Murdock. My inside sources tell me it's a hilarious comedy and it'll make a terrific film when someone in Hollywood wises up and gets around to filming it. You can have bragging rights over your friends by hearing it performed tonight by a small army of actors. After the show, Mike will be there to take comments from the audience.
It takes the stage tonight at 8:00 p.m. in the Experimental Theater at Marshall University's Joan C. Edwards Performing Arts Center. I advise getting there a bit early to find a seat - it might get crowded in there.
Saturday night you can catch a new musical, Collis P!, written by Clint McElroy with new songs written by Mountain Stage’s Larry Groce.
For further information or to purchase tickets, visit the Marshall University Theatre box office or call 696-ARTS (2787). Tickets are a steal at $5.00.
