The festival typically receives about 300 entries annually and features a unique collection of short comedies and dramas designed to entertain and engage audiences.

This event also serves as a fundraiser, with proceeds helping us maintain our commitment to producing high-quality, engaging theatrical experiences this season & beyond.

Ticket prices are:

    $15 - adults

Lend Me a Tenor
Written by Ken Ludwig
Directed by Bill King

A hilarious scene chewing, door slamming farce from acclaimed playwright Ken Ludwig in the tradition of the Marx Brothers and the screwball comedies of the 1930’s.  It is September 1934 and the Cleveland Opera Company is debuting a new production of Verdi’s Otello starring world re-knowned tenor Tito Merelli, better known as “Il Stupendo.”  In true farcical fashion a carnival of kooky characters make certain that anything that can wrong “will” go wrong.

Rehearsal For Murder

"Rehearsal For Murder"
May 4, 5, 6 and 11, 12, 13, 2018

Rehearsal For Murder
Adapted for the stage by D.D. Brooke.
From the television play by Richard Levinson and William Link
Directed by TBA

This is a thrilling "theatrical" mystery in which your theatre becomes the set for the play. The playwright turns on the stage work light and prepares for the first reading of his new play. The actors, producer, director and others connected with the show come onto the stage, and under their humorous (and utterly real) theatrical talk, tension grows. We discover that everyone connected with this play was involved with another play by the same playwright. At its opening night, exactly a year ago and in this same theatre, the beautiful leading lady, who was also the playwright's fiancee, was murdered! As these people start with the new play, startling connections to the murder begin to unfold. The growing tension reaches the boiling point with surprising revelations, countered by others even more surprising. The dazzling, yet basically logical twists build to a climax and solution that are theatrically stunning! The authors of this thriller have all had direct Broadway experience, and their dialogue has a special sting of wit and reality. For the best mystery in years, post a notice on your theatre callboard, "Rehearsal for Murder."
