One Act Festival

Every year, The Barley Sheaf Players host a judged one-act festival that offers a collection of different small shows, each running between five and sixty minutes. Each show, director, and cast has a chance to win awards and recognition, and the judges will select one or more shows to represent The Barley Sheaf Players at the next level of competition, the PACT (Pennsylvania Association of Community Theaters) festival later in the year.

This year, we are proud to be presenting 4 shows. We will start at 10 am and anticipate the festival concluding by 2 pm.

Snow date is Saturday, February 10
