• HOLIDAY PLAY FESTIVAL

    December 6 – 22, 2018

    Springs Ensemble Theatre (“SET”) wraps up its ninth season with its SET Holiday Play Festival, a special package of short, original plays written by talented local playwrights. Each 10-minute play captures the excitement, tradition, heartache, annoyance, and joy of the season. With musical interludes from one of Colorado Springs’ favorite duos, The Rogue Spirits, and poetry from local poet Jonathan Andujar, this entertaining evening is sure to satisfy anyone looking for an uplifting and slightly quirky twist on the holidays. Enjoy homemade cookies and eggnog in the lobby before the show with the SET extended family!

    This production features oodles of home grown talent: ten different directors, ten different playwrights, and dozens of performers.

    As these performances of the Holiday Play Festival are part of SET’s fundraising effort as a part of IndyGive!, tickets are free or pay-what-you-will, with a suggested donation of $20.
