Presenting the fourth-annual festival of student-written, one-act plays: Five Bowls of Oatmeal. This is our beloved annual partnership with that best-of-all-student-writing-centers, 826michigan. In short, FBOO is our attempt to perform a whole bunch of student-written short plays, each featuring a bowl of oatmeal, several zany costumes, and lots and lots of eponymously labeled foamboard. The playwrights, students from Ypsilanti’s Erickson Elementary and the Bright Futures program at Washtenaw International Middle Academy, have been hard at work in playwriting workshops led by playwrights Joe Horton and Russ Schwartz. They'll be interviewed, Inside the Actor's Studio-style, between sets. This year's installment, aptly titled Revenge of Oatmeal, is sponsored by the Helen Zell Writers’ Program, Kroger, and University Office Technologies, and will be held on Saturday, November 16, at 2pm at Lydia Mendelssohn Auditorium. Admission is $5 for adults and FREE for children and youth, and all proceeds will — of course — benefit 826michigan’s free creative writing and tutoring programs for students aged 6-18 in Ypsilanti, Ann Arbor, and Detroit.
Come enjoy plays with titles like “Not A Normal Day”, “Octopus versus Evil Monster”, "I Want to Lose My Leaves," and “The Chronicles of Baby and Rock.” They are sure to warm you like a great bowl of oatmeal.
It's Time for Another Bowl of Oatmeal!
