These fifteen original stories, donated by authors to help keep local theater alive, are fun, quirky, imaginative, and bold - the perfect way to tide over audiences until local stage curtains can once again rise! Each tale turns the spotlight on some unusual snapshot of life or imagination.

Sales from this book, along with generous donations from others in the community, will help local theaters survive and eventually thrive despite this most unfortunate ”intermission.” With new shows - and the resumption of those shows forced to pause during the pandemic - casts and crews will be once again ready to entertain you, and to bring the laughter and applause back to our stages and our lives. Until then, sit back, let us entertain you, and know that your listen has made a big difference for local artists...while we all wait in the wings.
