BRAND NEW AT KWSS THIS YEAR!
NEW PLAY READING
July 1, 2013 at the Red Barn Theatre, Key West, 8 pm
As part of the South Florida Theatre League's Summer Festival Reading Series, TheatreXP and The Key West Summer Stage have been selected as the Monroe County site for this year's readings. in a One Night Only event, MOMENT OF GRACE, the new play by Key West's Bob Bowersox (author, producer, and director of last fall's hit play at the Red Barn, PERSON OF INTEREST), will be read by 8 of Key West's top actors. A discussion of the play between audience, author, and actors will take place following the reading. The play centers around three friends who have gathered to mourn the passing of a fourth, only to find that the deceased man had a secret that comes to them in a startling way. It's a story about the nature of love, and how we each relate to it. A fascinating way to see the creative side of theater in process, and take a personal part in the development of a brand new major play!
July 7 & 28, 2013 at the Little Room Jazz Club, 821 Duval, Key West, 8 pm
Tell a True Story! Hear a True Story! Judge a True Story!
In a first for Key West, the Key West Summer Stage is premiering Story Slams, an event where anyone -- including you! -- can vie for cash prizes by telling the best true story of the night. Each storyteller will have 5 minutes at the microphone to tell whatever story they want to, provided it sticks to the theme of the night. The rest of the patrons will vote at the end of the night for the best stories. It's a hilarious night of real people telling real stories -- which always end up a terrific mix of poignant, funny, heart-breaking, and best of all -- true.
The themes for this year's KWSS Story Slams are:
July 1: "My First Time"
July 28: "Best Ever"
