Why One-Acts?

Gaslight Theater produces the Evening of One-Acts to encourage and mentor new directors, which furthers our goal of making theater arts more accessible. The One-Acts provide an opportunity for actors to take on intriguing roles with a lesser time commitment than a full-length production. It's also a great way for those who haven't acted before, or have limited experience, to "get their feet wet" on the stage.

Performances of the Evening of One-Acts will be at Hallowell City Hall:

  • Friday April 29, 7:30 pm
  • Saturday, April 30, 7:30 pm
