The Pink Banana Shorts Return
Next Spring’s Program Celebrates Sex, Drugs and the American Way
Pink Bananaâ€™s annual Spring One Act show is a little-known tradition in Milwaukee. Every Spring, the tiny theatre company presents a program featuring a disparate group of shorts featuring some of the most promising new and emerging talent in the city. Last seasonâ€™s festival featured a short directed by Youngblood Theatreâ€™s Michael Cotey starring, among others, Travis Knight of Uprooted Theatre, who is currently starring in Milwaukee Chamberâ€™s new show. Past collaborators on the shorts include Renaissance Theaterworks and Insurgent Theatre. Itâ€™s an interesting opportunity to see a wide sampling of different talents and styles before they emerge into bigger, more prominent productions elsewhere. It's been an honor to have a couple of snorts in previous productions onstge at both the Broadway Theater Center and the Alchemist Theatre. This May, Pink Banana will be presenting its latest selection at the Off-Broadway Theatre.
Sex, Drugs And The American WayÂ runs May 17th through June 6th at the Off-Broadway Theatre. The theme stated in the title should make for some interesting submissions for this year. Pink Banana is currently accepting script submissions for the show. Theyâ€™re looking for funny, serious or abstract scripts in any style. Submissions can be sent via email to:
The deadline for submissions is January 15th of 2010.
