Baytown Little Theater play festival opens Friday

Baytown Little Theater is offering a change of pace with The Other Side Short Play Festival, opening Friday for two weekends.

The evening will feature 10 short plays of about 10 minutes each--each is a different story by a different author. The plays were selected from submissions from authors around the world, and this is the first performance for some of the plays.

Playwrights whose works are included hail from Texas, New York, Los Angeles, North Carolina, Michigan, Florida, Canada and Australia.

Performances are at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday Aug. 16, 17, 23 and 24 and at 2:30 p.m. Sunday Aug. 18 and 25 at Baytown Little Theater, 2 E. Texas Ave.

Tickets for this special performance are $15, and this show is not included in season tickets. For tickets call 281-424-7617 or go to
