Check out the Hitching Post Theater at the Nomad Theater every 2nd Sunday of the month. Five playwrights pen short plays from 830am – 1230pm. Their works are turned over to a director and two actors who rehearse until 6pm with the performances at 7pm and 830pm.
BCM’s Alan O’Hashi wrote of the five plays. The theme was “Romeo and Juliet – Another Lifetime” and the required prop was a blue parasol umbrella.
