Part of the American Association of Community Theatre’s national competition, this weekend brings many of the most talented and creative community theater performers, writers, directors and technicians together to showcase their work.
At the festival, The Newtowne Players will perform woman: revised, an original one-act play by local author Trish Cole that depicts the thought process behind the writing of the dictionary. Cole also wrote Butterfly, which represented The Newtowne Players at the 2010 Maryland Community Theatre Festival.
Attendees have the chance to see 10 plays in three sessions (Jan. 14 at 8 p.m. and Jan. 15 at 1 p.m. and 8 p.m.). All performances will be held at Three Notch Theatre on 21744 South Coral Drive in Lexington Park.
Individual session passes cost $15, while a festival pass for all 10 plays costs $40. Tickets are available at the door by cash or check only. Charges are available online at www.ticketleap.com.
