The Davis County Players To Present Second Annual Summer Shorts Play Festival
WHO: The Davis County Players, sponsored by the Davis County Fine Arts Council
WHAT: The Summer Shorts Play Festival
WHEN: 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Aug. 5-6.
WHERE: At the Iowa Theatre on the east side of the square, downtown Bloomfield, Iowa.
Two shows only, the Davis County Players will present six short plays about friendships, all written and performed by your friends.
There will be a $50 prize for the best locally-written play and a $100 grand prize for the best overall play. Those winners will be announced the first week in August.
The calls for submissions of short plays from Iowa authors went out in February, and the Davis County Players, the best-kept secret in the Midwest, sorted through stacks of plays, all between 5-15 minutes in length, and selected six to perform on Aug. 5-6. Some of the plays are hilarious, some are heartwarming, some are outrageous. Audiences of all ages are sure to love this collection of short plays all about friendship, written and performed by your friends.
There will be a full evening of entertainment, with live music and live poetry, including local Bloomfield band “dognott” and local poet John Pisarik, among many others poets and singers. Artwork by Davis County artists will also be on display. Host Gail Wortmann will emcee the event.
Tickets: $8 for adults, $6 for ages 12-and-under available at the door the day of the show.
