Short Play Festival

Ignite! Community Theatre

is proud to announce the 2nd annual

Spokane Playwrights’ Booklight Showcase

All plays submitted were reviewed by seven members of Ignite!’s board of directors for content, type of play, character development, etc., and rated. We engaged in some lively dialog, particularly regarding those shows for which a wide range of ratings was present, and final selection was based on an overall average rating.

The following seven plays were selected for production in a Readers’ Theatre format (in alphabetical order by title):


Gabrielle Lee

Lawnmower Philosopher

Mike Noel

Mistaken Identity

Paul Ruch

Publish or Perish

Gail Cory-Betz

Self Help

Adam Sharp

Shel Silverstein Was Probably French

Jeff Corey


Katie Carey Louden

We will be having auditions for the plays on Monday and Tuesday, April 15th and 16th, at 6:30 PM at our theatre in the Spokane Valley Partners building at 10814 E. Broadway in Spokane Valley.

Performances will be May 17th and 18th at 7:30PM, and May 19th at 2:00 P.M. We will be casting at a minimum an ensemble cast of 5 women and 3 men – please come & audition! Tell your friends!
