ONSTAGE 2016 in Prescott – We Did It!


Mary Timpany and Frank Malle in CJ Ehrlich’s THE LILAC TICKET at the Prescott Center for the Arts October 6-8, 2016

Wow… WOW!  We did it – our 2016 Female Playwrights ONSTAGE Festival rocked the stage at the Prescott Center for the Arts, thanks to a team of incredibly talented, fun, and passionate artists.

And it was awesome!

This year’s line-up was seriously one for the record books: 12 short pieces that travelled to the moon and back, made us fall in love with the sassiest and sweetest octogenarian couple ever, let us know what our boobs were really thinking, and a whole lot more.  And we did it all in under 2 hours – perfection!

Of course, getting there wasn’t a piece of cake… I was wrangling the creative circus in Arizona from Arkansas (even directing a few pieces via FaceTime and Google Hangouts) with a baby on my hip.  Which is why I owe a HUGE thank you to our Prescott team of directors, actors, and tech rock stars!  (Check out this year’s program at the end of this post)

And although we didn’t get but a few actual stage pictures, I did snap some pics of the casts backstage.  Here’s a peek at some of our awesome actors…
