Applause Community Theatre is proud to present 3 one act plays by local playwrights. We chose two of these from several scripts submitted to us this fall/winter. The third was commissioned from resident playwright James Lundy. We have presented several of his works in the past to enthusiastic response. We are omitting descriptions of the plays as to do so could spoil surprises in the scripts. Please join us for an enjoyable evening of one acts.

  • Locked Inside the Pretty Box by resident playwright James Lundy and directed by Chad Snyder
