Submissions for the 15th Annual One Act Festival

The Montgomery Playhouse is accepting submissions to direct for the 15th Annual One Act Festival. We will also accept submission of original work plays.

As you may know, The Arts Barn has decided to use that space during July and August for full-scale productions. As a result, the Montgomery Playhouse is currently looking for alternate venues for the One Act Festival. The One Acts will be performed in either August or September depending on the venue. As soon as this has been established we will determine the dates of the production as well as the audition dates.

Because of this uncertainty, we are asking for shows that would require a minimum of staging. Please keep this in mind as you consider the play you would like to select. This is new territory for us all.

Actor William Gillette, famous for his portrayal of Sherlock Holmes, invites the cast of his latest play to his pseudo-medieval castle in Connecticut for a séance. What follows is a clever who-done-it packed with both suspense and laughter. Recommended for ages 15 & up.

May 12-28, 2017 (closes Memorial Day Weekend); Tickets: $20
In partnership with Gaithersburg Arts Barn/Arts on the Green
As a respected health crusader and devoted wife and mother, Dr. Lyssa Hughes seems perfect for the role of U.S. Surgeon General, until a chance remark at a fashionable brunch sets off a media feeding frenzy.

Broadway’s tribute to the genius of Rodgers & Hammerstein.             This is the perfect Valentine’s Weekend show — a revue of Rodgers and Hammerstein songs about love and romance in all sorts of stages, ages and varieties. But if you can’t do that weekend, you get the two following as well.                                                                                        And to make extra sure you can come, we’re even doing two shows on Saturday, February 20.

The production features a cast of five singing 38 beloved and lesser-known songs, including some very jazzy arrangements
that sound like the Andrews Sisters and Manhattan Transfer.
This isn’t your grandma’s R & H folks — It’s funny, touching, toe-tapping, all-singing fun!
There are only 9 performances, and the Arts Barn only has 99 seats, so make your reservations now!

It doesn’t get more grand than this!
