Well, as if 2020 couldn’t get any scarier…we’ve had to do the unspeakable and cancel the 10th Annual Short Play Festival – BOO! It was a very tough and harrowing decision, which took much deliberation and consideration.
The safety and health of our community and theatre is our top priority and though we debated several different methods to possibly perform, in the end we had to make the executive decision to hold off.
We have every intent of being back into the theatre by February 2021 (hah, heard this before?) for SPF-SEX 2021. We will be opening submissions in the coming weeks, so keep and eye out and get to writing!
