Back by popular demand, end the summer on a high note with our Festival of Short Plays! AACT is kicking off the 2019-2020 season with Summer Shorts, a collection of short scenes and one-act plays selected to showcase local actors and directors. You'll see a variety of works performed in nine scenes by six directors on three stages all in one evening. There will be zany comedies, contemporary works from María Irene Fornés and others, and even an original work written and directed by Doug O'Keefe, who will be joining Thomas Maple in their AACT directing debuts.

The audience is invited to bring a picnic dinner (homemade or something tasty from a favorite restaurant) to enjoy before or during the performances. In dinner theater style, tables will be set up in the performance space to dine at and enjoy the show from. Non-table seating will also be available. Non-alcoholic beverages will be provided.

Drive-by Tacos food truck will be on site from 6-8 p.m. on Thursday the 15th and Saturday the 17th. On August 17th the East Alabama Arts Association will also be sponsoring and providing wine, ID required.
