Not/Our Town by Brendan Healy A new take on the iconic American classic Thornton Wilder play, Our Town, by veteran writers group member, and presented by Pony World Theatre. (https://www.ponyworld.org/onstage) "Both the 1938 original and this new play examine family, community, and those journeys in life common to us all. Some people love Our Town, while others don't know it or think it's outdated. So how much this production feels like Our Town or Not will be up to you! Because even when the destination is the same, there are hundreds of different paths to get there." Tickets available at https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/5587205

Short Film Opportunity NPA & The Washington Center for the Performing Arts will be sponsoring a short film contest featuring a modest cash prize and screening at our annual Center Salon at the Washington Center. Previously produced? No problem. Will we charge a fee for each submission? I dunno, do you think it's kosher to charge actors to audition? Of course not.
