‘Random Acts’ celebrates 10 years this weekend

The always popular, fun-filled evening “Random Acts” will celebrate its 10th birthday this year as more than 50 members of the theater gather at the Firehouse on Saturday night.

Presented by Writers and Actors INK, the evening consists of short plays written, cast, rehearsed and performed as staged readings in just 24 hours, or seven plays from the page to the stage courtesy of the writers and actors.

The playwrights begin tomorrow night when they are randomly paired and sent off to create the play, which has to be 10 minutes long, in just 12 hours. The finished plays are sent to directors and actors early the next morning to be randomly cast and rehearsed until the curtain goes up Saturday night.

The performance will begin at 8 p.m. Tickets are $15.
