Come and support the theatre and artists of all types in this unique opportunity to be the first to see and hear these new stories given life!
Jake Edmondson is a playwright, videographer, and actor.

You may remember him from the cast of The Elephant Manback in February.
Canary Cottage is his second play about an old downtown Victorian that is currently, a rundown, board-and-care facility for the elderly. When an 88-year old Miss April goes missing but is later found at the bus station, everybody breathes a sigh of relief… except Miss April.

Linda Scheller is the author of Fierce Light (FutureCyclePress) in which the voices of 36 great women from world history and culture are imagined through poetry. Her writing has been widely published in journals and anthologies. Now retired from teaching, Ms. Scheller leads writing workshops, volunteers with a Modesto community radio station, and often plays as an actor.

In the year 1823 in Canterbury Village, Nathaniel and his new wife Dorothy give his daughter Sarah to the Shaker community to care for her and teach her the Shaker faith and way of life. When a young man joins their community, convictions are tested.

An Oregon Book Award Nominee, Nick Zagone grew up in Portland, OR. Recently his short film “The Gas Station” was on the 2017 short list for best short film at the Cannes Film Festival. And his adaptation of “Treasure Island” was commissioned and produced at Merced College in California. He is resident playwright at Prospect Theatre Project in Modesto.

In Detour: Roberts is living the life of a dead man. Literally. It’s 1945 and in a moment of bad luck on a road trip through Arizona, Roberts finds himself a new life as a new man. Detour is now a “theatre noir” where the dreams are big, but the realities are darker.

Jack Shamoken , a California native living in Chicago, started writing sketch comedy in his teens which parlayed into a life-long devotion to theatre. Screenwriting for independent film has taken him to Vienna and Los Angeles. As an author, under a pseudonym, he’s written books of fiction & poetry The Global Blimp is a play set in the writer’s room of a weekly grocery store aisle tabloid who has covered twenty-five years worth of stories about UFOs, to Big Foot, ghost-of-Elvis sightings to the Loch Ness Monster. But the paper has just lost its celebrity columnist & all its advertisers.

This MCT weekend event welcomes artists seasoned and new for audiences to experience readings & development labs from emerging & seasoned playwrights. November 3-5 : Friday and Saturday at 7PM, Sunday at 2PM. Tickets: $5. All Weekend Pass: $10
