Our Shorts Are Showing

Playwriting Competition Winners

In celebration of Arts Month 2022, Craft Production Resource presents the 6 winning SHORT plays from the 10th annual “Our Shorts Are Showing” Playwriting Festival Competition. Come enjoy an evening of new, original, short plays, written, directed, and performed by our local Colorado talent.

The 2-day event takes place on Thursday, October 13 and Friday, October 14, at 7 pm each night at Cottonwood Center for the Arts, in the 2nd floor David Lord Theatre. Free parking and elevator available.

On both nights, 2 mini-plays (monologues) and 1 short play will be presented live on the stage. The remaining 3 short plays are live-on-tape with no editing, and they will be presented on the large screen in the theatre in-between the live stage productions. On stage or on tape, you will be watching the plays as the actors performed them (goofs and all) from their opening to closing words. Front row “magic”!
