8th Annual Shorts Aloud Festival

Feb 18 at 7:30pm
Feb 19 at 2:00pm + 7:30pm

Get out your calendars and a pencil!  Lemon Bay Playhouse is proud to announce that the Eighth Annual Shorts Aloud Festival, produced by Kathy Amelia, is scheduled for Saturday, February 18 at 7:30pm and Sunday, February 19, at 2:00pm and 7:30pm.  This show, “The Art of Readers Theater”, is presentation by the Lemon Bay Playhouse Readers Theater Group. The performance consists of six short comedic selections, with intermittent entertainment from Carol Burnett and Friends, 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.
