Stop by the ‘Hitch’ for five new plays – auditions for future events Dec. 2

Here’s the best stage play gig in town – Hitching Post Theater. Looking for a great night of entertainment? Stop by the Nomad Theater in north Boulder on Sunday December 12.

Here’s how it works. Five writers meet at the Kelly Barn at 830am and given a topic, grab a prop out of a box and randomly choose two actor head shots then have until 1230pm to write a short play.

When the time limit is up, each writer hands the prop, head shots and script are handed over to a director who tracks down the two actors. They have until around 6pm to rehearse.

The doors open at 630pm and the plays are performed that evening at 7pm and 830pm at the Nomad Theater on North Broadway.
