Back to Square One

Kids are the stars of this show

STRATFORD - The Square One Theatre Company’s Teen Theatre troupe will present its 4th annual production, a series of contemporary plays in a staged, readers theatre format. Back to Square One Readers Theatre Festival will run from July 15 - July 17 for four performances only, according to a statement.
"The theatre company is an off-shoot of the 20-year-old Square One Theatre and is supported, in part, by a special grant from The Milford Bank," the statement said. "The festival will be completely teen produced, acted and directed."
Square One Artistic Director Tom Holehan said, also in the statement, “We are excited and happy to continue our sponsorship of a younger generation of actors and directors in producing live theatre in Stratford during the summer.”
The schedule for the readers theatre festival: July 15 at 8 p.m., "Four Dogs and a Bone," John Patrick Shanley’s hilarious Hollywood satire; July 16 at 8 p.m., "The Book of Liz," by Amy and David Sedaris; July 17 at 2 p.m. "Proof," the Pulitzer Prize winning drama by David Auburn; July 17 at 8 p.m., an original trio of comedies by teen playwrights, "Conscription" by Justin Santore and "Good Therapy Bad Therapist" and
"Hi My Name Is...," by Conor Bartram, the statement said.
The young cast of the theatre festival includes Stratford residents Jillian Vale, Ryan Marcone, Brendan Rooney, Chelsea Holtz, Tory Tallberg, Michael Brelsford, Maggie Reilly, Joey Welchand, TJ Riordan, Katie Kirtland, of North Haven and Ryan Downs of Hamden. Directors for the production are Casey Miko and TJ Riordan, both of Stratford.
Performances are scheduled at the Square One Theatre Company, 2422 Main St.
Tickets are $10 for the general public, $8 for current Square One subscribers and $7 for students/seniors, the statement said.
