The South Florida Theatre League is excited to announce the return of Summer Theatre Fest. For the sixth season in a row, the League has sponsored readings of new plays by local playwrights at our member theatres from Jupiter to Key West.
It’s a great way for audience members to try a new to them location. All readings are free and open to the public.
The South Florida Theatre League launches Summer Theatre Fest with our annual membership meeting and this year will close the festival with the Remy Awards. Every Monday in-between is a reading of a new play (or multiple short plays).
We are still in the process of finalizing details, but here is the current schedule for the run of Summer Theatre Fest. As we move forward, more plays and details will be finalized.
