Directors had a month to create a concept, cast, and rehearse their plays. Each director is trying something new with their play. Anywhere from having an all-female cast to trying see how many parts one actor can play in a show.
This year we are adding a Duke and Duchess to the event. The Duke and Duchess are two actors that will open and close the festival with monologues and in-between will act in all 8 plays. This year’s Duke and Duchess are
DJ Douglass and Kayla Conrad.
