City Theatre's popular Summer Shorts festival will unfold June 12-July 6 in the Carnival Studio Theater at Miami's Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts. But already, producing artistic director John Manzelli has figured out his acting company and who will be joining him in directing this year's short plays -- Margaret M. Ledford and New Theatre artistic director Ricky J. Martinez.
Returning to the Shorts company are Irene Adjan, Elizabeth Dimon and Todd Allen Durkin. Joining those experienced Summer Shorts actors are David Perez-Ribada, Niki Fridh and Mcley Lafrance. Jodi Dellaventura will create the Shorts set, Ellis Tillman the costumes and Matt Corey the sound design. The play titles are TBA but coming soon.
Performances will be 8 p.m. Wednesday-Saturday, 4 p.m. Sunday, and tickets will cost $40-$45. To launch sales, City Theatre is offering a 20 percent early bird discount on tickets purchased by April 30. Use the promotional code EARLY (valid for Wednesday-Friday shows).
