What dya’ say we go on an odyssey?… What a great sound that has.
What dya’ say we go on an adventure?
(pause, another approach)
How about…let’s just take a trek to Shepherdstown, the oldest town in West Virginia doin the newest plays in America?
It’s closer than you think…AND… It’s worth the trip!
So…what dya’ say?
Do you wanna be engaged?
Do you wanna be entertained?
Do you wanna be inspired, transformed and transported by the power of a good story?
Where else can you see and experience FIVE new plays in rotating repertory in a beautiful, rural, historic American town? Where else can you meet other theater lovers like yourself and form an instant kinship and bond over art and ideas? Where else can you have total access to the makers of the art and engage in a living conversation? Where else can you dine, relax, walk and talk-theater?
There is no place like the Contemporary American Theater Festival. Our 21st Odyssey continues with a rotating repertory of FIVE new American plays by:SAM SHEPARD. DAVID MAMET. TRACY THORNE. KYLE BRADSTREET. LUCY THURBER.
So…What dya’ say we go on an odyssey…an adventure…and discover new American theater?
(pause, very simply this time)
How ’bout let’s just drop everything and go to the THEATER FESTIVAL?
Wanna join our artistic community…in July? Do you wanna share our journey to create the future?
