New Play Festival needs directors

JOHNSTOWN – Colonial Little Theatre calls for directors for its eighth annual New Play Festival of staged readings May 9, 10, 16 and 17.

The festival was rescheduled from November 2013.

As these are staged readings, minimal rehearsals will be required. There will be no set, and only very basic costumes. However, there will be some blocking, a news release said.

Production staff also is sought for the festival.

Plans for the festival include a full-length play one weekend, and two or more short plays the other weekend, the release said. All plays are by residents of the greater Capital Region.

Resumes can be sent to Wally Truesdell at
