More Than Just A Beautiful Place

A Theater Company Producing Original Work

The natural beauty of the Gulf Coast of Florida is legendary. And the climate is the stuff of great boasting by locals and visitors. But there is more.

Periodically, I will share information about the arts and culture that so envelopes this region. I begin today with Theatre Odyssey, a producing theater company with its origin in 2006. (I have also created a specific link on my Home page because of my longtime relationship to the company. )

Theatre Odyssey produces short plays in three annual festivals. Its iconic Ten-Minute Play Festival invites play submissions from playwrights throughout Florida. The Student Ten-Minute Playwriting Festival welcomes work from high school students along the Gulf Coast, and the One-Act Play Festival accepts plays from throughout the United States. The plays must be original work. This means the company is often introducing work as a world premier. The non-profit theater company has produced nearly 200 original plays.

A community is much more than great living spaces and landscapes, and extraordinary climate and natural environment. Its art and culture serves exploring minds, too.  Join us?
