ENJOY 4 NEW Plays in 1 Night!
New Voice Play Festival 2019
June 21st & 22nd at 8:00pm | June 23rd at 2:30pm
The Old Opera House is proud to announce the finalists for the Old Opera House’s 2019 New Voice Play Festival. Each year the Old Opera House asks playwrights from across the country to send us their new one-act plays. These plays are then read, discussed, and read out loud by a panel of judges* and four finalists are selected. The four finalists will be presented on the Old Opera House stage on June 21st & 22nd at 8:00pm, and June 23rd at 2:30pm.
A FUN Twist: you get to be a theatre critic for the evening. We ask our patrons to vote for their favorite play of the festival. Following Sunday’s performance, the votes are tallied and the festival winners are announced.
