August 12, 2022 - Opening Night Review

As If Theatre Company are back with their second in-person edition of The Kenmore Quickies - a collection of eight short plays that follow a certain set of guidelines from inception to the stage. The sold-out performance on Friday evening was another indicator of the great work As If Theatre Company has been doing since the beginning.

The show was split into the four plays, an intermission, and another set of four plays. The audience was encouraged to vote for a fan favorite play at the end of the performances.

A few takeaways from last night is that there is a lot of talent here in the local theatre scene. Some of the talent have been lovingly perfecting their craft for decades while others are new to the scene and eager to take part. The key word was consistency among the eight plays in terms of talent, execution, and enjoyment.

Many of the plays had strong comedic elements that had the audience laughing out loud. There were others that were straight up drama that begged for more backstory in the best possible way.

Much like a shorts film festival, The Kenmore Quickies offered something for everyone. Some were perfect just the way they were while others were a great appetizer for a full length production in the future.

Kudos to the playwrights, directors, actors, and the creative team behind The Kenmore Quickies. The quality of the performances made for a fantastic evening of theatre in Kenmore, WA!

There are performances on Saturday 8/13 at 2pm and 7:30pm and Sunday 8/14 at 5pm. Purchase tickets here:  TICKETS!
