Community Players will host its 27th annual JERSEY VOICES
One-Act Festival with five performances between August 6 and August
15. This year’s production will include seven original short plays
written by New Jersey playwrights.
We welcome you to join us as we explore the joys of live, original
theater in The Chatham Playhouse, where JERSEY VOICES
has provided a venue for New Jersey playwrights to showcase their
work since 1995. There’s a risk in coming to see any author’s new
work, whether you’ve heard of them before or not. It’s brave and
courageous, and we’re grateful our audience trusts us enough to share
the experience. JERSEY
VOICES has presented the work of more than 90
authors in their 27 years.
over a year of virtual theatre and plenty of Netflix, I could not be
more excited to be bringing JERSEY
VOICES back to life on the Chatham stage. As we
got all the actors and directors together for our first read-through,
you could feel the excitement in the room as people prepared to
create again,” said producer Jessica Phelan of Montclair.
