Ten people are stranded in an isolated country mansion during a raging thunderstorm and one by one
they’re picked off by fiendishly clever devices. As the bodies pile up in the library, the survivors race frantically
to uncover the identity and motivation of the cunning culprit. This Agatha Christie inspired satire is set in 1935
to a rousing vaudeville style score, and guarantees a smashingly good time for mystery and musical fans alike.

Bridget and her Grandmother are about to become roommates. However, what Bridget saw as a unique opportunity to stay
with her favorite Nana in New York for the summer quickly turns into an experience she’ll never forget. It seems her sweet Grandma
is running an illegal boutique from her apartment, selling hand-made naughty knickers to every senior citizen in the five borough area!
Will Bridget be able to handle all the excitement? Will her Nana get arrested - or worse! - evicted?
Performances Weekends July 14 - 29

Submissions Requested
Thunderous Productions
Ninth Annual One-Act Festival
We expect to be presenting four of five plays during the two-hour presentation. |
We also anticipate that one of the entries will advance to the MCTFA tournament next January.
We are now accepting submission of plays for consideration.
All plays should be original, non-published one acts as we are planning to spotlight the talents of local playwrights drawn from the community.
All playwrights will be required to sign a waiver of royalties.
This is a “no frills” competition being presented as a public service and not necessarily a profit-making venture.
The plays should be submitted in electronic form (.doc or .pdf formats please) to the following email address:
Rick Starkweather
Hard copy submissions will not be accepted.
All plays should be a maximum length of 50 minutes and can be either comedy or drama.
The deadline for submission is Monday, May 1st.
Please indicate with each submission whether you intend to direct the play yourself (assuming it is accepted) or want us to assign a director.
It is advantageous to submit plays with pre-set directors.
We expect to make a decision on the selected plays by May 31st
and hope to have directors in place and the rehearsal process underway by the middle of June.
Production will be this coming September.
