Looking for a way to get into the holiday spirit? Want to see a play but not sure you want to commit to a two-hour one? Is variety something you enjoy? You are in luck!
The Winters Theatre Company is proud to present its inaugural 10-Minute Holiday Play Festival featuring eight different 10-minute plays that will get you into the holiday spirit with laughter, sighs and maybe even a few tears.
