2017 Gainesville Homegrown Local Playwrights' Showcase

2017 Gainesville Homegrown Local Playwrights’ Showcase
December 7-17, 2017; various times

Our 2017-2018 Season marks the fifth anniversary of this not-to-be-missed event! For audiences, it’s the opportunity to see staged readings of local authors’ plays here– first– before they hit the big time! For

local playwrights, it’s the opportunity to see how your play works with real actors and real audiences so that you can tweak it before submitting it for consideration as a mainstage event.

This year’s lineup is bigger and better than ever before-- 12 plays over two weekends-- and a ticket to the festival is just $15:

Tickets for individual events are $5 each (One Act Stand is considered a single event). However, a single, solitary $15 all-access pass gets you in to ALL events (plus a nifty, laminated keepsake ticket!). Because we do not have assigned seating, we recommend you arrive 30 minutes before showtime to secure your seat.

Two weekends, 12 Shows and and a lifetime of memories, all yours for less than $2/show. $15 tickets for the entire showcase are available online at acrosstown.org; $5 tickets for individual shows are available at the door.
