Seabury’s wild selection of shorts side shows

May 22, 2014
By MICHAEL PULLIAM ( , For The Maui News

Seabury Hall Performing Arts concludes its 2013-14 season this weekend with its 19th annual Side Shows, a wild array of short plays by professional, contemporary writers and student playwrights, Jordan Priest and Abby Stoner. Similar to the famed Samuel French Off Off Broadway Short Play Festival, Side Shows gives Seabury students a small taste of a future professional theatrical career. At the Samuel French Festival, several hundred young writers and directors, not much older than these Seabury students, are narrowed down to 30, 10-minute plays. The finalists then mount bare-bones productions at alternative New York City performance spaces. A panel of playwrights, agents, directors and producers select six winners, who are awarded publishing and licensing contracts, which generally leads to a professional writing career. Seabury Hall may be off-off-off Broadway, but a quick glimpse of its alumni reveals many a performing arts success story.
