Night on Broadway

Three Notch TheaterThe Newtowne Players announce upcoming performances of four one-act plays, two of which are original scripts, during its annual Footlight Festival.

In Sure Thing, by David Ives, Betty and Bill meet at a restaurant, but their conversations are a little rocky  fortunately, they get a chance to redo every missed conversational opportunity.

Mental Reservations, by Roger Cornish, is an examination of how little everyday lies affect interactions between two people in a snapshot of their relationship.

In Headquarters, by local author Peter E. Abresch, an elderly gentleman faces and comes to terms with the end of his life. This play was originally featured at the Maryland Community Theatre Festival in January 2012 and represented The Newtowne Players at the Eastern States Theatre Association Original Works Festival in Pennsylvania in April 2012.
