Theatre of the First Amendment Play Festival
From eligible submissions, one play shall be selected for production on the main-stage of Nittany Theatre at the Barn (a 99 seat regional summer stock theatre) during Constitution Week, September 19-20-21, 2017. As cast by Nittany Theatre at the Barn’s Producing Artistic Director (and designated directors), members of the resident theatre company will perform the play with simple staging, sets, props, costumes, lighting and sound effects. Depending on the size and complexity of the play, performances may be book-in-hand. The selected play will be staged after 6 – 8 rehearsals and receive 3 performances in front of a live audience. Each performance will be followed by an audience talk-back session with playwright, directors, tech, staff, and cast in attendance.
In addition to the staged reading at Nittany Theatre at the Barn, the winning play shall also be showcased for a public-reading staged at the Eisenhower and Laurel Manor theatres in The Villages, FL, October 26-27, 2017.
