Collection of one-act plays showcased in theatre

May 21, 2013 by  

The Playwrights Showcase is an annual festival that brings new plays to the public eye in the setting of a small and intimate theater.

Held in a quaint, 19th-century building, the Playwrights Showcase is about 10 minutes from Cranbury and is the perfect opportunity for local businesses to do some advertising. Flyer printing and other services offered by local print companies can aid businesses in gaining publicity. The lobby will open its doors an hour before the show starts, which is an opportune time to circulate digital business cards as well.

Geared around the whole family, seats are a mere 15 feet from the stage, so their should be no complaints of a lousy view of the fun. Seating opens a half hour before the curtain rises, which allows everyone to choose their spot, and guests are reminded that the earlier they arrive, the more likely they are to have their favorite location.

Five short plays will light up the evening, each with its own carefully designed story. The Playwrights Showcase happens just once a year, so it might be an idea to bring a camera to remember the night.

The tickets cost $20, or $18 for seniors and students. The show runs three nights from Friday, June 28 – 30. The tiny theater has room for fewer than 100 seats, so people interested are urged not to hesitate it making their reservation.

The location of the theater is 130 Grand Ave, Leonia, NJ 07605. On the Friday and Saturday, the show starts at 8:00 pm, and it begins at 3:00 pm on Sunday.
