13th Annual Festival of Shorts

June 27-30, 2024

Join us for our 13th Annual Festival of Shorts! The theme for 2024 is “Silver Linings: A consoling or hopeful prospect.” Each performance includes eight short plays that include multiple directors and casts. Come and be a part of our annual festival where the audience votes for a favorite at each performance from among the eight finalists. 

The finalists are chosen by volunteer reading groups who are given blind copies for rating. We typically receive submissions from around the globe! The shorts must not have been produced for an audience previously and follow the guidelines provided for the competition. Past winners have later been developed into full-length award-winning plays!

Thank you to First Financial NW Bank for sponsoring the 13th Annual Festival of Shorts!

  • “The acting was extraordinary, particularly Poirot and Mrs. Hubbard but they were all excellent. The staging was mind blowing. I felt like I was on a train in a snowstorm. One of the most impressive plays I have seen and I attend at least a dozen live performances every year and have been for over 40 years. Truly memorable.”
  • “Really wonderful production! Me and my family enjoyed all aspects. Great acting, pace, staging. Despite most everyone already knowing this famous story, I was on the edge of my seat the whole time. That’s how well done it was!”
  • “I was blown away by the performance! The acting was amazing and just the environment felt so welcoming. I will definitely be coming back for more shows!”

Ken Ludwig’s clever adaptation of the Agatha Christie classic boasts all the glamour, intrigue and suspense of Dame Agatha’s celebrated novel, with a healthy dose of humor to quicken the pace. Just after midnight, a snowdrift stops the Orient Express in its tracks. The luxurious train is surprisingly full for the time of the year, but by the morning it is one passenger fewer. An American tycoon lies dead in his compartment, stabbed eight times, his door locked from the inside. Isolated and with a killer in their midst, the passengers rely on detective Hercule Poirot to identify the murderer – in case he or she decides to strike again…

“Agatha Christie’s Murder on the Orient Express” is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of Samuel French, Inc. www.concordtheatricals.com

  • “My kids loved this adaptation. The cast was very talented: especially Willy Wonka and Veruca Salt. We’ll be coming back!”
  • “This was my first time attending a Driftwood production. Terrific show, cozy theater, good sound and special effects, great cast!”
  • “We were so impressed with the quality of this show! We have never attended a show here but will definitely in the future! It was magical, beautiful and excellently preformed! So impressed and made my Christmas”

Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka follows enigmatic candy manufacturer, Willy Wonka, as he stages a contest by hiding golden tickets in five of his scrumptious candy bars. Whomever comes up with these tickets will win a free tour of the Wonka factory, as well as a lifetime supply of candy. Four of the five winning children are insufferable brats: the fifth is a likeable young lad named Charlie Bucket, who takes the tour in the company of his equally amiable grandfather. The children must learn to follow Mr. Wonka’s rules in the factory… or suffer the consequences…

ROALD DAHL’S WILLY WONKA is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI. www.mtishows.com

  • “This was the perfect play to acknowledge and honor women’s history month!”
  • “The set was fabulous and so ingenious to use gears to represent Babbage’s engine. The projections also added a wonderful element showing actual drawings and letters from the historical characters. The subject was fascinating and made me look Ada up online to learn more. Wonderful show – loved it!”
  • “Great production, enjoyed it thoroughly. I knew very little about Ada Lovelace and left inspired to learn more!”

As the British Industrial Revolution dawns, young Ada Byron Lovelace (daughter of the flamboyant and notorious Lord Byron) sees the boundless creative potential in the “analytic engines” of her friend and soul mate Charles Babbage, inventor of the first mechanical computer. Ada envisions a whole new world where art and information converge—a world she might not live to see. A music-laced story of love, friendship, and the edgiest dreams of the future. Jane Austen meets Steve Jobs in this poignant pre-tech romance heralding the computer age.

ADA AND THE ENGINE is presented by special arrangement with Broadway Licensing, LLc, servicing the Dramatists Play Service collection. (www.dramatists.com)

Thank you to Fluke Corporation for sponsoring Ada and the Engine!

  • “This was the best show I have ever seen at Driftwood. Well acted and hilarious. I told multiple people to go that night.”
  • “What a wonderful production! And such a lovely way to end the season! The casting was spot on, the characters and writing were relatable and fun, the set was perfect. Thank you so much for a fabulously enjoyable evening!”
  • “Took my mom who is from the south, we both loved it. Thanks for the laughs. Loved all the ladies but particularly enjoyed Dot, she reminded me of my great aunts.”

In this delightful, laugh-a-minute comedy, four unique Southern women, all needing to escape the sameness of their day-to-day routines, are drawn together by Fate—and an impromptu happy hour—and decide it’s high time to reclaim the enthusiasm for life they’ve lost through the years. Over the course of six months, filled with laughter, hilarious misadventures, and the occasional liquid refreshment, these middle-aged women successfully bond and find the confidence to jumpstart their new lives. Together, they discover lasting friendships and a renewed determination to live in the moment—and most importantly, realize it’s never too late to make new old friends.
