a mystic romance in 2 acts

by Bob Valine
directed by Sonja Berggren

PANNDORA PRODUCTIONS proudly presents our 7th full production of a brand new play discovered through our annual new works festival ~


Panndora invites you on a poignant, unpredictable and humorous journey ~

Enter a ramshackle house and meet a mysterious new tenant, a delightfully disorganized mother, a head-strong daughter, and a son determined to ride his motorcycle to the moons of Jupiter.  Join their journey as they travel the distances that separate people, arriving where they started, knowing you have to lose something to find it.

with Colleen McCandless, Erik Pfeifer, Paul Scott, and Karen Wray

PANNDORA'S BOX is open for submissions from May 1 - July 1, 2018. Sharpen up your pencils and send us your masterpieces for our 12th annual new works festival. Each year we produce one of the plays by our Festival participants.

New works, full length or long one acts (over 60 minutes), which have not been previously produced are eligible for consideration for Panndora's 12th Annual New Works Festival.

For 7 years, we have gone on to produce one of the winning plays, On May 18, this year's winner, Bob Valine's JUPITER MOON, a mystic romance will open at the Garage Theatre. We hope you will come see it.

There are two ways to submit works to PANNDORA'S BOX. Email them directly to [email protected], or mail a hard copy to Sonja Berggren at P.O. Box 30733, Long Beach, CA 90853. If you submit by mail and want your script returned, please enclose a self addressed stamped envelope. (We prefer electronic submissions as they are easier for our committee to read and share.)

You may submit up to 2 plays for consideration.

Because this festival has been so successful from an artistic standpoint, and because we want to continue to hold these festivals in the future, we assess a reading fee of $10 per script to help offset our costs, which include theatre rental, copying scripts, printing programs, advertising, professional reviewers.

The Festival will be held at the GARAGE THEATRE over the weekend of October 19-21, 2018.
