We’re ba-ack! And sunny days means SHORTS WEATHER!!

As If Theatre Company is back at it with our 3rd Annual Short Play Festival, The Kenmore Quickies – A Play on Art!

Eight playwrights, eight directors, and 13 actors come together to bring their talents to the stage for 4 performances, August 11-13, 2023.

This year’s inspiration for the short plays is provided by 8 wonderful local artists! Our local playwrights are randomly assigned their director, cast, and art piece,  and given a limited number of props to use (or not use – we’re not monsters).  Then the playwrights are sequestered deep within the forests of the South Americab Amazon (or their home office) for 4 weeks to devise their short play. Upon the deadline, the playwright returns from the forest (or their home office) and hands off the script to the director. The director gathers with their cast to rehearse for 2 weeks prior to opening night.

Each evening audience members will vote for the Audience Favorite Award, which will be presented after Sunday’s performance.

Funny, serious, a bit strange, and downright weird are all adjectives that can be used to describe this event.  Plus one heckuva good time!

This popular event plays at the historic Kenmore Community Club located right in the heart of Brewery Row, a short stroll to restaurants, and backs up to the Burke-Gilman Trail. Walk, bike, roll, or drive down to the club to celebrate the weird and the wonderful!

This is As If Theatre’s little love letter to Kenmore. So join us, won’t you?

As If Theatre Company

In the long-standing debate, “Does art imitate life or does life imitate art?” As If Theatre Company consciously chooses the latter. We want our art to instill within you hope and laughter, conflict and resolution, empathy and awareness, and a deeper understanding of yourself and others.

We are committed to bringing engaging, challenging, and entertaining theater to the community just north of Seattle. Our company believes that theater is community and together we can tell stories that inspire thought, engage conversations, and join all of us together to tell a bigger story. Passionate and dedicated, As If Theater Company’s ultimate goal is to change our small piece of the world for the better.

Performing at the historic Kenmore Community Club, As If Theatre Company was started by local theater artists, Cindy Giese French, Amy Gentry, and Molly Hall, who wanted to create an artistic home in the Northend. As a burgeoning city without a theater group, Kenmore was the ideal location to call home.

So come along. Play with us.
