Five plays comprise the 2008 “Original Short Play Festival” produced by the Second Stage wing of the Auburn Players Community Theatre, Inc.
The first play in the Festival will be “Promises to Keep” by first-time playwright/actor Marcus Brumberger of Auburn. His work is a tribute to his mother and all mothers who give their children ‘roots and wings’.
The next play will be by Linda Rohrig of Manlius. She earns her living as a computer tech and spends her free time creatively answering the question, “what if?” In her first play, “Transitions”, soldiers face the reality of war and redemption.
Geneva playwright Kathryn White draws on her reading and experience as a tour guide at Rose Hill Mansion to write about spiritualists and séances in the 1860s in “Medium”, the third play of the program.
Next, the Auburn Players Second Stage will be premiering George Freek’s latest short play “After Godot”. George lives in Belvidere, Illinois and has had his plays produced by the Milwaukee Repertory Theatre, the West Coast Ensemble in LA, the Pittsburgh New Works Festival, the 13th Street Theater in New York, and the Vortex Theatre in Austin and overseas.
Rounding out the Festival is “Shopping Spree” by Sarasota, Florida playwright Maureen Martin. This play was inspired by all the people who need to buy everything on their shopping lists. Maureen’s plays have been produced as off-Broadway, regional, and
syndicated radio productions. She has also worked in broadcast and stage production and as a theatre critic and columnist.

The Festival will be held at the Auburn Public Theatre on Fridays and Saturdays, September 26, 27, and October 3, 4, at 8pm and on Sundays, September 28, and October 5, at 2pm at the Auburn Public Theater, 108 Genesee St. in Downtown Auburn. Tickets are $10. This festival has adult themes and is not recommended for children. Reservations may be made by calling 315-258-8275. For more information contact Bourke Kennedy at 315-253-4315
