Play Festival Playbill

Welcome to the Chapel Theatre Play Festival 2023

This play festival is about building community; it offers an opportunity for playwrights to get their work in front of an audience, for folks who are interested in trying out their hand at directing, or for actors who are seeking more visibility. It’s also for more seasoned writers, directors, and actors, as well; it’s an opportunity for all of these folks to work together. 

When we first produced this festival in 2021, it was all virtual and felt like a completely different product. We are so thrilled to finally start this festival on stage in front of an audience and are completely blown away by the talent and effort every person has put into this festival. We will continue to learn and grow from this experience and hope to produce this festival annually.
