|Rich Heritage of Cedar Rapids theater troupe, which produces shows for adult and youth actors and audiences, is staging its first combined youth and adult production for Valentine’s Day weekend.
Those who love to write plays or skits, or have ever considered being a playwright, are invited to show their creative and romantic side.
The troupe is seeking skits five to eight minutes long, for youth and adult performers, with no more than six cast members. They must be original ideas and each writer may submit up to three skits, fitting one of the following genres: horror romance; dramatic romance; action romance; sciencefiction romance; western romance; adventure romance; fantasy romance; crime romance; romantic comedy; mystery romance; thriller romance; war romance; sports romance; disaster romance; dark comedy romance (PG rated); or superhero romance.
Submission deadline is 7 p.m. Monday, by emailing Deidra Benser at Deidra@rhcrtheatre.com. RHCR will select skits to be performed virtually on Zoom. Show selections will be announced Jan. 13. Those interested in directing also should email Benser by 7 p.m. Monday.
Cast auditions will be held Jan. 16 and 17 via Zoom, and will be followed with three weeks of rehearsals. The skits will air Valentine’s Day weekend.
