City Reads for CityWrights are fun and informal evenings of new play readings, presented by City Theatre and its acting company, that give audiences a first-hand role in the process that scripts go from page to stage. Audiences serve as critic and supporter, or even as an actor, while having a peek at what makes City Theatre a center for fresh, new works.

These evenings are an entertaining way for audiences to help City Theatre find great plays among the hundreds of submissions that the company receives for its annual Summer Shorts Festival. Summer Shorts is America’s Short Play Festival that will take place from June 12 – July 6, 2014 at The Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County, with an incredible line-up of scripts penned by the country’s best writers including City Theatre National Short Play Competition winners.

City Theatre has packed up its shorts and hit the road for the 2014 Shorts 4 Kids Tour. This unique educational outreach program introduces children to the art of theatre through age appropriate, socially relevant, entertaining and exciting short plays that appeal to young audiences in bite-size portions.

City Theatre’s Shorts 4 Kids features a selection of three 10-minute short plays that focus on important issues such as bullying, self-esteem and acceptance. The City Theatre Acting Company, comprised of talented young artists from across South Florida, will engage the audience in a lively question and answer period after each performance. The plays and talk back periods act as a spring board for further discussion of relevant issues that challenge today’s youth. Online study guides are available on City Theatre’s website to help introduce students to the short play format and subject matter of the performances:

This year’s Shorts 4 Kids is directed by City Theatre’s Assistant Artistic Director Mcley LaFrance, and includes three new short plays by Jason Edelstein and Mary Sansone:

Sword Fate Online
by Jason Edelstein
Riza is enthusiastic about joining an online game called Sword Fate Online, when she runs into the most popular team called Heroes of the Hand. She is eager to impress them but is surprised that they are less than friendly. Will she falter in the face of adversity or will this be a story for the ages?

Mr. Nomis
by Mary Sansone
The last place Beau wants to be after school is playing with his buddy Robert’s little sister in the front yard. But Robert insists that having a ceremony for his little sister’s pet is more important than playing Madden. Will Beau help Robert or will he be the reason for a disastrous occasion?

Art Basil Basel
by Mary Sansone
Erik’s been waiting all year to go to Art Basel but what happens when he discovers that rumors are being spread about him that may jeopardize the trip.

The Shorts 4 Kids acting company and creative team features Andre Russell (Musical Director/Sound Designer/Sound Engineer), Jason Edelstein (Actor/Playwright), Mary Sanson (Actor/Playwright/Set Designer), Stephanie White (Actor/Dance Choreographer), Jovon Jacobs (Actor), Kaitlin Sarnacki (Costume and Prop Design), Georgina Delgado (Production Stage Manager) and David Diaz (Sound Technician).
