"The Zoo Story", our entry in the 2011 AACTFest

The Playhouse will hold performances of Edward Albee's "The Zoo Story" on March 3rd, 4th, and 5th at 8 PM. Directed by Nathan R. Miles, "The Zoo Story" is a one-act play that is our entry into the 2011 AACTFest.

AACTFest is the American Association of Community Theater Festival, a state level competition that sends competitors to a regional (and later a national) competition. This year, AACTFest will be held in Artesia, New Mexico at the state level, Lewisville, Texas for the regional level, and Rochester, New York for the national level.

Winners at the state level advance to compete in the regional competition. To compete, theater companies must enter a show that has a total performance time of 60 minutes or less, with a setup and strike time of no more than 10 minutes.

Our entry this year, "The Zoo Story", is a story of Peter, a man reading a book on a park bench in Central Park in New York, and Jerry, another man who earnestly tries to draw Peter into conversation. Robert Schumacher plays the role of Peter, and Nick Keele the role of Jerry.

Also included in the competition is a new feature, the monologue workshop and competition. Presenting monologues are playhouse veterans Brad Jett and Briana Schneider. Winners of the monologue competition will perform on the final day of competition for the entire conference.

Make your reservations now to see "The Zoo Story". Tickets are $10, and show dates are March 3rd, 4th, and 5th at 8 PM at the Playhouse.

Please come out and show your support, as proceeds from the public performances will go towards the costs of sending the group on to competition.
