The One Act Festival is back again year with a new crop of scripts from Wisconsin playwrights.

The Village Playhouse’s Original One Act Festival has been an ongoing project for over 30 years. The festival is intended to give playwrights a means to see their work move from the paper to the stage. Working together, a playwright, a director, a cast, and a crew develop and polish scripts for presentation to an audience over the course of three weekends.

The Village Playhouse is proud to have been the first (and we like to think the best) to implement the concept of an original one act play festival here in Wisconsin.

It takes a Village to do what we do so we would greatly appreciate your financial support.  

Checks may be mailed to Village Playhouse; 1500 South 73rd Street; West Allis, WI 53214.

Village Playhouse is a 501c3 organization and donations are tax-deductible per IRS guidelines.
