As you can imagine, this put our reading committee in the position of needing to make some very tough selections between many, many excellent pieces of original theater. We are happy to announce the line-up for this year’s festival, performing January 22-24, 2016:

“And Twice on Sunday” – Written by Brad Sytsma (Caledonia, MI). Directed by Bill Kaufman.
