NEW PLAY FESTIVAL

February 25 – March 6 Presented Live on Zoom, Pay What You Can!

Virtual Arts Productions, a virtual live theater company, is winding up its inaugural season with a New Play Festival beginning February 25, 2022 via Zoom. This innovative theatre company lives on the internet. VAP brings together friends and artists in an effort to lift their spirits and encourage their voices to be heard.

Established in April 2020 as a reply to the absence of live audiences due to the COVID-19 pandemic,  VAP presented five virtual productions as both fundraisers and as paid events to allow the voice of the theatre to move forward when so much of life was at a stand-still. VAP strives to keep theatre alive and vital as a form of communication and hope.

Virtual Arts Productions is committed to producing significant and compelling live virtual theater. Our selection of original plays in our New Play Festival speak to contemporary audiences in a modern and inclusive nature. We promote virtual readings and full length productions with actors and writers from across the country. We seek to present works by multicultural writers that explore far reaching viewpoints and opinions that create a forum for learning and discussion.

Our New Play Festival presents new works in a variety of genres, including comedy, horror, drama, and even a musical. We celebrate the lives of Ava Gardener, doctors on call, Zoom meetings gone wrong, and friendships in a pandemic. Our writers have been represented Off Broadway and regionally, including Charles Messina (The Wanderer/Paper Mill Playhouse), Darrel Alejandro Holnes (Franklin Ave/The Sol Project), and Larry Pellegrini (Tony n’ Tina’s Wedding/NYC, LA, Las Vegas, Chicago, National Tour and via Zoom benefiting the YWCA of Hawaii). Author, Joe Leone, received “best writer” at the 2021 Accord Cine Fest for his feature, Death Sentences.

Rounding out this inaugural roster of playwrights are Nevada Playwrights: Scott Johnson, Jason Harris, Donte Miller, and New York Playwrights: Philip J Kaplan, Louisa Vilardi, Kathleen Kaan, Concetta Rose Rella and Micah Spayer,.

The Virtual Arts New Play Festival is supported in part by the Nevada Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts.

The Virtual Art’s New Play Festival will take place the last weekend of February and the first weekend of March, 2022 on Zoom.
