SOS THEATRE FEST: INTERNATIONAL, January 22 – March 12

The MAIN Presents SOS THEATRE FEST: INTERNATIONAL
January 22, 2021 – March 12, 2021

Stage On Screen (SOS) Theatre Fest: International is a FREE eight-week online theatre festival featuring modern plays presented by theaters from around the world. The festival will present interactive stories, compelling dramas, original one-acts and more! SOS also includes a “MAINcast Interview” and a new production, weekly!

The “MAINcast Interview” is curated to take an in-depth look at each weekly featured production with the director and main cast members. Each “MAINcast Interview” is scheduled every Tuesday at 7:00 p.m. on Facebook at Facebook.com/TheMAINNewhall, until March 9, 2021.

On Fridays, it’s showtime! Watch the theatrical performances every Friday on Zoom, through March 12. Many of the performances will begin at 7:00 p.m. PST, unless otherwise specified to accommodate different time zones. Virtual doors will open 15-minutes before the show starts. All productions can be accessed on Zoom at Zoom.us, meeting ID #99907497020, using the passcode: SOSfest. Each show is followed by an exclusive “Audience Talkback” where the audience is encouraged to participate and interact with the cast and crew! Unlike the “MAINcast Interview,” the “Audience Talkback” is an opportunity for the community to connect and engage with the performers in real-time.

All shows are free. If you would like to support the talented cast and crew, there will be a link during each performance to make a donation. We invite our community to support and partake in the thrill of live theatre from the comfort of your own home!
