selections announced for the 2017 CALEB REESE FESTIVAL OF NEW PLAYS AND MUSICALS
May 5 - May 13
Phoenix Theatre continues to foster the development of original works by new voices and perspectives. The Festival provides opportunities for playwrights, composers and lyricists to showcase their original works in their Pre Pre-Broadway or Pre Pre-Off Broadway stage of development.
This year's Festival includes four staged readings, an evening of short plays, the composer/lyricist cabaret, and a variety of free readings/events.
The Things We Do - by Grant Woods
Love and lust and the things we do when the things we want aren’t so clear anymore.
Community - by Stephen Kaplan
A play about a play (within a play?) tackling deadly issues like race and, perhaps even more dauntingly, community theatre.
The Lemonade Stand - by Matthew Fowler
This dramatic comedy sets out to prove that "the American Dream," "an American Dream," or at least Garret's American Dream still exists.
Something for Sondra - by Dave Osmundsen
A hilarious and heartbreaking story that forces three characters to navigate the rocky waters of friendship and loyalty.
