Get out your calendars and a pencil and save the date! Lemon Bay Playhouse is proud to announce that the Ninth Annual Shorts Aloud Festival, produced by Kathy Amelia, is scheduled for Saturday, February 17 at 7:30pm and Sunday, February 18, at 2:00pm and 7:30pm. This show is presented by the Lemon Bay Playhouse Readers Theater Group. Each performance consists of six short comedic selections covering a variety of life situations with an interesting twist. These three performances guarantee a unique theater experience with a light-hearted and amusing flair. Please reserve a seat and come see the humorous side of life! All we ask is that you sit back and let your imagination be set free. By doing this, we assure that you will leave the theater entertained and laughing.
The Readers Theater format is an interesting example of live theater where the scripts are read and there is minimal set design and props. LBP Readers Theater is open to those interested in reading or hearing plays in a group setting. Meetings are held at the playhouse on the first Monday of each month, from 9:30 am to noon, starting in October and continuing through May. No theatrical experience is necessary to participate. In this setting, actors do not memorize lines but read from scripts. It is a good way for new actors to try their hand at public performance and to gain familiarity with other skills such as script analysis, character development, and other acting tools. It is a delightful way to enjoy hearing new plays with fellow theater fans!
