About the Play Series

After selecting the one-act plays to be part of the Play Series, director hiring will happen as required. Directors will then hold auditions and crew hiring for their productions and begin the rehearsal process. The plays will be performed in succession for an audience during the Juvenis Festival (April 27th-May7th 2022).

This is an in-person event, so those who would like to direct their plays must be in Kingston for the entire process (January-May).
