Sheldon Edelman One Act Play Festival

Performance Dates: July 7 & 8, 2017



Festival Directors: LaVonne Canfield & Kim Riley

The One Act Play Festival’s mission is to bring together a group of diverse and creative artists to produce a weekend of exhilarating theatre to share with our community. From the seasoned actor to the curious newcomer; first time directors and students of theatre to those retired from the craft; people with a flair for fashion to someone with a curiosity about how a light board functions - this is your call!
