Coming up at the Wood


February 8th

Play Fest brings 70+ volunteers together for an unforgettable 24 hour race to put on a show. On Friday (2/7) all these volunteers will arrive at the Wood Theater with no idea what will happen in the next day. Those brave souls will be randomly formed into nine teams, each with 1 writer, 1 director and 3-4 actors. Then a theme for the Fest will be announced and teams will meet for 1 hour before writers go home to write their ten-minute plays (to the year’s theme). Writers must email scripts by 5 AM on Saturday morning. Teams assemble at the theater on Saturday morning and have until the curtain opens at 8 PM to rehearse, memorize and stage 9 ten-minute plays. Audience votes decide the winning writer, director, actor and actress!



Godspell was the first major musical theatre offering from three-time Grammy and Academy Award winner, Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Pippin, Children of Eden), and it took the world by storm. The show is a celebration of community, diversity and the message of belonging, according to Schwartz. Led by the international hit, “Day by Day,” “Godspell” features a parade of beloved songs, including “Prepare Ye the Way of the Lord,” “Learn Your Lessons Well,” “All for the Best” and “Turn Back, O Man”. “Godspell” is a sensation that continues to touch audiences – we invite you to join us for the celebration.



Dark Sarcasm is a Pink Floyd tribute band, playing popular songs from The Wall, Dark Side of the Moon, Animals, Wish You Were Here, Momentary Lapse of Reason, The Division Bell, and more!
