Theater just doesn’t grow any homier than this: pieces by local writers at the Rosendale Community Theater. Out of 35 submissions from local writers, 10 winners were chosen (including award-winning author Laura Shaine Cunningham); each piece features the theater itself as inspiration, setting, or theme. The festival of 10-minute shorts by Ulster County authors is the brainchild of Susan Einhorn, who’s coordinated nine themed festivals in Manhattan. The Plays Festival will take place on Saturday, April 21 at 8pm and again on Sunday, April 22 at 3pm and 7:30pm. Admission is $15. Tickets are available at Rosendaletheatre.org and will be available in April in the box office.
