Good day on this chilly Monday.
Ixion Theatre is giving good secrets the potential to become great stories with its “Secrets” event. Writers from all over Greater Lansing produced over 100 short plays in response to the company’s call for original scripts, all inspired by the theme of “secrets.” Eight finalists remain in the running to be produced by Ixion Theatre and director Paige Dunckel in May.
“We had so many great submission for ’Secrets,’” said Jeff Croff, Ixion Theatre artistic director. “These eight offered the quirky storytelling and skewed perspectives we thrive on.”
Monday is the first of two staged readings of the finalists’ scripts, and audience members are encouraged to give feedback about each of the submissions. Auditions for the selected plays will be in March.
