As If Theatre Company is back at it with our 2nd Annual Short Play Festival, The Kenmore Quickies – Tall Tales! Eight playwrights, eight directors and 14 actors come together to bring their talents to the stage for 4 performances August 12-14, 2022.
Each of the 8 plays are based upon a different piece of Kenmore’s history. Our local playwrights are randomly assigned their cast and director and given a limited number of props to use (or not use – we’re not monsters). Then the playwrights are sequestered for 4 weeks to devise their Tall Tale. On the deadline, the playwright hands off the script to the director as they gather with their cast to rehearse for 2 weeks prior to opening night.
Each evening, audience members will vote for the Audience Favorite Award, which will be presented after Sunday’s performance.
Funny, serious, a bit strange, and downright weird are all adjectives that can be used to describe this event. Plus one heckuva good time!
This popular event plays at the historic Kenmore Community Club located right in the heart of Brewery Row and backs up to the Burke-Gilman Trail. Walk, bike, roll, or drive down to the club to celebrate the weird and the wonderful!
This is As If Theatre’s little love letter to Kenmore. So join us, won’t you?
*** COVID-19 PROTOCOL – Unless actively eating or drinking, masks will be required for the duration of the event for all crew and audience members.
