OOHP presents Snowdance February 3 – March 5, 2017
Friday at 8:00pm; Saturday at 5:30 and 8:00pm. Sunday at 2:30pm and Thursdays at 7:00pm
Over Our Head Players has announced the 10 finalists selected for performance at the “2017 Snowdance® 10 Minute Comedy Festival.” Between July and October, a record-breaking 284 scripts were submitted for consideration. Playwrights from 35 states and six foreign countries entered the competition. The largest number of entries came from California, followed by New York. Three of the 2017 finalists have competed in previous Snowdance competitions.
The Snowdance selection committee has chosen these 10 finalists to further compete in production. These original comedies will be performed together by the OOHP Snowdance® ensemble at Sixth Street Theatre in February. At each performance, audience members can vote for their favorite individual comedy; the audience favorites win cash prizes.
