Description

As If Theatre Company is back at it with our 2nd Annual Short Play Festival, The Kenmore Quickies – Tall Tales! Eight playwrights, eight directors and 14 actors come together to bring their talents to the stage for 4 performances August 12-14, 2022.

Each of the 8 plays are based upon a different piece of Kenmore’s history. Our local playwrights are randomly assigned their cast and director and given a limited number of props to use (or not use – we’re not monsters).  Then the playwrights are sequestered for 4 weeks to devise their Tall Tale. On the deadline, the playwright hands off the script to the director as they gather 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 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.
