Join us for our 10th Anniversary MN Shorts Play Festival show Sept. 6-7, 2018, where we will feature 14 of the best short plays from our first nine years.

Because of the special show, we will NOT be taking submissions during 2018. We will again take submissions in 2019 for our 11th play festival.

Look for our lineup announcement in January of 2018.
As always, our shows will be 7:30 p.m. at Lincoln Community Theatre in Mankato.

Congratulations to this year's Best of the Fest:

The Pit of Destruction by DW Surine of Inver Grove Heights and
A Merry Frugal Christmas by Greg Abbott of North Mankato.


Play With Your Food's final show will be 6-8 p.m. Wednesday, March 14 at the Mankato Makerspace building, 1700 3rd Avenue in Mankato. There are only 3 seats left for our Makerspace Madness show with The Misty Trio, four short play readings and some amazing food. Online purchasing is over. Call 507-420-1881 to reserve the remaining tickets.


Our Mission
