New Voice Play Festival 2019
June 21st & 22nd at 8:00pm | June 23rd at 2:30pm
The Old Opera House is proud to announce the finalists for the Old Opera House’s 2019 New Voice Play Festival. Each year the Old Opera House asks playwrights from across the country to send us their new one-act plays. These plays are then read, discussed, and read out loud by a panel of judges* and four finalists are selected. The four finalists will be presented on the Old Opera House stage on June 21st & 22nd at 8:00pm, and June 23rd at 2:30pm.
A FUN Twist: you get to be a theatre critic for the evening. We ask our patrons to vote for their favorite play of the festival. Following Sunday’s performance, the votes are tallied and the festival winners are announced.
Frozen in Time
By Mike Sockol, Holmdel, NJ
Directed by Z. Gilbert
Jim's reluctance to take his relationship with Judy to the next level is tested when the couple discovers that a portal to the other side resides inside their refrigerator … and it conjures up some unexpected guests. When his parents and girlfriend's drag queen "aunt" drop in for a (very) surprise visit, Jim must consider how he feels about Judy and what their future holds. Life is finite, but love is forever.

by Charlie Perkins – Charles Town, WV
Directed by Jen George
On a beautiful summer day, lonely stuffed rabbit, Fluffy, pines for his long-lost owner, Diane. As he sits atop the $5 table at a yard sale alongside other discarded household items awaiting their fate, Fluffy wrestles with an uncertain fate and the harsh realization that he may never see Diane again. One-by-one the other items on the sale table Alika, a Hawaiian Hula dancer lamp, Blendy, a vintage blender, and Crossley, a child's record player meet their fate. Will Fluffy and his friends get a second chance at life with new owners? Or will they be relegated to the trash bin?
