Theatre Three presents Theatre Three Off-Stage/On-Line

Theatre Three, Port Jefferson, proudly presents Theatre Three Off-Stage/On-Line, an exciting series of short works, each no longer than fifteen minutes.

In an effort to present original content in a unique way, Theatre Three’s call for scripts has garnered nearly 900 submissions. The pieces have been written or re-conceived for the online platform, and writers have used the constraints of the format as a different way to tell stories. Theatre Three continues to accept submissions; guidelines can be found at https://theatrethree.com/offstage-online.html.

The series debuted Sunday, May 3, at 7:00 p.m. with the comedy Taking Sum Lumps, by Ken Preuss, starring Michelle LaBozzetta and Brian Smith. Posting on Wednesdays and Sundays, the series is approaching its fiftieth play. Works from over thirty playwrights have been performed by over 120 actors. Playwrights have been as local as Setauket and as distant as New Zealand. Actors have ranged from local to California to Israel.

The plays may be viewed on the Theatre Three’s YouTube channel:

The series is directed by Theatre Three’s Artistic Director Jeffrey Sanzel. Technical production is by Tim Haggerty and Eric J. Hughes.

The entire series is made possible by the generous sponsorships of Alan Schelp and Andrew Markowitz.

New premieres every Sunday and Wednesday night at 7:00 pm on YouTube, Facebook, and, of course, Theatre Three’s website: theatrethree.com.
