Weathervane Playhouse received 150 submissions from talented and creative playwrights from across the country. It was truly difficult to arrive at the Final Eight Finalist Plays, but after many readings and a lot of discussion, we arrived at the following:
A Life-Time Warranty by Maureen Ann Connolly of Cumberland Foreside, Maine
Duet in Platinum by Allston James of New York City
Goodnight, Sweet Prince by Barbara Bleier of New York City
How Dick & Jane Fell in Love by Lina Gallegos of Dallas, Texas
Rules of Comedy by Patricia Cotter of San Francisco, California
The Bingo King by James Caputo of San Diego, California
The Silver Bullet by Joe Lauinger of Ossining, New York
Waiting for Baby by Christina Blosco of Norton, Ohio
Get your tickets now for the 2012 8x10 TheatreFest at Weathervane Playhouse — July 13 to 15. We’ll present three performances of all eight Finalist plays on Friday, Saturday at 8 p.m. and Sunday at 2:30 p.m. Guest judges will determine the first- and second-place winners – but the audience will vote for the Fan Favorite Award! Winners will be announced and prizes awarded following Sunday’s matinee.
The first 8x10 TheatreFest was a “hot ticket” in 2011 and we expect it to be again this year. Tickets are only $10, so book now to guarantee a seat! Call the Weathervane Box Office at 330-836-2626 or CLICK HERE to buy your tickets online.
