Giving@First is a unique opportunity for our troupe to show off their ability to function under pressure while also raising funds for excellent causes. A Friday night kickoff meeting draws teams of actors, directors, and writers together and gives them a few key elements. Writers write all night, directors read their scripts, and actors rehearse throughout the day Saturday, culminating with the first and only performance on our stage Saturday night.

If you would like to participate in 2021's virtual Giving@First, please complete this form by January 15, 2021. Due to the increasing interest in our community, we may not have the ability to include all who sign up. You will be contacted by the Festival director or producer by the end of January. If we are not able to include you this year, you will be given priority for our next Giving@First festival.
