Theatre Bristol to Host Playwright Dinner Theatre

May 14, 2012

Bristol, VA-TN (May 8, 2012) At long last and after many months of hard work, Theatre Bristol is opening the ArtSpace doors again for a unique theatrical experience. On May 18 Theatre Bristol will proudly be presenting three one-act plays written by the winning local authors of their 2011 Playwrights Contest. To celebrate opening its performance doors again. The plays are Prom Tryouts by Rose Klix; The Serpents Curse by Roman White; and The Rockheimers by Dawn-Hunter Strobel.

The three plays are a part of Theatre Bristol’s ongoing effort to recognize, foster and support local talent. The three plays are Prom Tryouts, The Rockheimers and The Serpent's Curse. Prom Tryouts, featuring performances by Ben Fitton, Katelyn Morrell, Brooke Smith, Nick Austin, Jonathan Cross, Audrey Scyphers, Will Walling and Camille Gray, is as entertaining as its title. Torn by who to take to the prom, the main character resorts to auditioning potential dates looking for Ms. Right. But is he overlooking the real girl of his dreams?

The Rockheimers, featuring performances by Audrey Scyphers, Will Walling, Ben Fitton, Camille Gray, Luke Grey, Brooke Smith, Rori Simmons, Callee-Scout Love and Audrey Chapman is an unusual tale about a most unusual family. Led by a father who is a professional dog-food taster, this family rides a roller coaster when crazy Uncle Joe shoots the neighbors cat, or so he thinks.

The Serpents Curse, features performances by Ben Fitton, Katelyn Morrell, Will Walling, Jonathan Cross and Nick Austin. Unfolding before you like only a murder mystery can, this play centers around a winged serpent statue about to be given to a local museum. Who dies? Who did it and why? And what becomes of the statue? Come to Theatre Bristol to find out!
