November 15 & 16

For the 3rd year, MAT will host the 24 Hour Play Festival. On Friday night one writer, one director and an equal number of actors are randomly placed on teams. A headline is then randomly drawn from a collection of newspapers. Writers have from 8pm Friday until 8 am Saturday to write a 15-20 minute play incorporating the headline. At 8 am Saturday, the script goes to the director and the cast who have until 8 pm that night to rehearse the script. All plays are presented Saturday night for the public.

Sign up as a writer, director, actors, or techie.

December 6-21

The classic tale of magic beans, a giant, and treasure with a Panto twist. Written especially for our community, this play takes place in the little town of Cowrump Ford which is terrorized by the evil giant Thunderbunz and his henchman. Jack trades his family’s cow for some valuable magic. His mother throws them out and a gigantic beanstalk appears the next morning. Jack must find the treasure and get back home without being captured by the giant. Fun for the whole family.
