A Midsummer’s Night’s Dream is a Shakespearean classic comedy with unforgettable characters, language and outcomes. 
The play:
On a Midsummer’s night,  four young lovers find themselves wrapped in the dream-like arms of an enchanted forest where sprites lurk and fairies rule. While a feuding Fairy King and Queen are at war, their paths are crossed by Bottom, Quince and their friends presenting a play within a play. Chief mischief-maker Puck is on-hand to ensure that the course of true love is anything but smooth, and games of fantasy, love and dreams ensue in Shakespeare’s most beguiling comedy.


Seeking Short Play Submissions

The weather outside might be frightful (frightfully hot), but the Winters Theatre Company is already pining for those cooler, crisp days of the holiday season, with the smell of nutmeg and peppermint in the air.
The holidays may still be months away, but the Winters Theatre Company is seeking your help, or should we say “Elf Help,” to help make our “Ten-Minute Holiday Show: Elf Help Edition,” a show that will make elves beam with pride!
Now through August 15, 2022 we are looking for YOUR submissions for our ten-minute play production that will be a live, in-person show (no virtual component) for 2-3 weekends between Thanksgiving and Christmas in Winters, California.  The exact performance dates are still TBD.
We are looking for scripts that celebrate that “elf spirit” in all of us! Funny, poignant, creative, and “feel good” scripts are especially encouraged, as we all could use some of that elf magic! All of the guidelines, additional information, and deadline information are available in document at the link below.
We are looking forward to receiving and reading your submissions, and then going through the tough process of selecting the eight scripts that will be performed this fall (date TBD) in Winters!  Final selections will be announced on September 15, 2022.

The Spring Fling Popup Show was a huge success. It is nice to be back live. Thanks for your support. 

The ten-minute original plays included some plots with comic situations designed to bring laughter and other plots that brought a few tears.

Several plays introduced new actors and directors to our local audience, and others  welcomed back veteran performers.

The Yolo Ramblers, a group composed of area musicians, provided the musical part of the evening’s entertainment and featured selections which contributed to the theme of each individual play. 

The Yolo Ramblers:  from l to r:  Bill Cavins, Ken Kemmerling, Moreen Libet, and Frank Fox. Scott Schwerdtfeger and Cameron Toney have a meeting of the minds in  “Hamlet Investigations” by Ellen Abrams.  L to R: Bridget O’Flaherty, plays the principal, as two very different parents, Jennifer Rutherford, Janene Whitesell, get called in for a “talking” in the play “Tailwinds” by Kelly Morgan-Lallo.
