Figments November 2nd - 5th, 2023

Rick Jacobs is a playwright with a wild imagination -- perhaps too wild!

Play Title: Cinderella: the untold story
Director: Kaydence Dickson
Cast Size: 11 plus     Run Time: 30-40 Minutes
A fairytale wedding of the fake Cinderella and Prince Charming comes to a screeching halt when O’Reilly, a fairy tale fixer, breaks it up to reveal the true, untold story.

Play Title: Bad Auditions by Bad Actors
Directors: Comet Mitchell, Aidan Heusman
Cast Size: 4-14     Run Time: 25-30 Minutes
Newbie director Carol (In the script as Casting Director a.k.a. CD) has one day to find the leads for a community theater production of Romeo and Juliet. But what seems like a simple task proves impossible when the pool of auditioners includes extreme method actors, performers who just don’t know how to channel their rage, and one woman who may or may not think she’s a cat. This hilarious comedy will bring you to the last place you’d ever want to be…behind the doors of a casting session.

Play Title: Selfie
Director: Elyza Searcy
Cast Size – 3 W, 1 M, 4 Any (8-16 actors possible)     Approx Running Time – 30-35 minutes
It’s senior year and problems are mounting for a group of high school students as they prepare for the future. Facing bullies, parents, pressure, sickness, and their own self-judgment, the characters search for ways to stand out. As they document their year, one click at a time, they come to realize life is not about what other people see — it’s about the pictures they have of themselves.
