CALL FOR ONE ACT PLAYS!

ALLEGAN COMMUNITY PLAYERS CALL FOR ONE ACT PLAYS!

The Allegan Community Players will be presenting our Fifth Annual One Act Play Festival at the Griswold Auditorium on May 4th – 6th 2018.

Writers are encouraged to submit original plays to be considered for this One Act Festival.  In the past we have produced plays written by local high school students and adults. And we have had writers from as far away as Oregon.  Plays should be short, about 10 to 15 minutes when acted out.  You’re also more likely to have your play chosen if the setting is simple and the number of characters is small.  ACP isn’t a very big group but we always welcome anyone who wants to act to or join in on the fun of producing community theatre!

Send your play (preferably in PDF format) to acp.oneacts@gmail.com from December 1, 2017 through March 1, 2018.  You can also email any questions you may have.  Visit our Facebook page or our website for more information.  www.allegancommunityplayers.org

Judge Reginald P. Cogsworth, a curmudgeon who hates sweets, is judging a charity bake off, albeit grudgingly. In the middle of the tasting, sour old Judge Cogsworth drops dead, and it’s up to Mrs. Peabody, head of the contest, and the audience to determine the murderer.

Taste the desserts and solve the mystery!

Tickets $10 – Available at Something Sweet downtown Allegan or at the door the day of the show.

Hilarious comedy of the worst singer in the world In 1940’s New York, the performer who everyone wanted to see live was Florence Foster Jenkins, an enthusiastic soprano whose pitch was far from perfect. Known as ‘the first lady of the sliding scale’, she warbled and screeched her way through the evening to an audience who mostly fell about with laughter. But this delusional and joyously happy woman paid little attention to her critics, instead she was surrounded by a circle of devoted friends who were almost as eccentric as she was.

Based upon a true story, the play spins from Florence’s charity recitals and extravagant balls, through to her bizarre recording sessions and an ultimate triumph at Carnegie Hall in this hilarious and heart-warming comedy.

“Glorious!” Auditions set for Sept. 7

Glorious! By Peter Quilter
