News in Brief

S2S2S Announces the 2023-24 Season


Script2Stage2Screen is our performing arts project.   All staged readings take place in the sanctuary at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are avilable on the website and are $15.00. 

Welcome to our 15th season.  Our New Works committee has read more than 140 plays submitted to give you a diverse and exciting roster.  We’ve got comedy and drama with a soupcon of sci-fi sprinkled in for good measure.  We are thrilled to include an offering from a high school playwright in April.  S2S2S continues to reach out to our community to provide quality theatrical experiences within our workshop format.

Thank you all for your continued support. I look forward most to your reactions and opinions during the ‘talk-backs’ after each performance. I know the playwrights do. See you at the theatre.

Steve Fisher

Artistic Director, S2S2S
