Littleton, CO – After a three-year postponement, the Encore Players at Littleton United Methodist Church will sponsor a Native American Short Play Festival, produced by Celebration of Native Arts (CoNA) on April 21 at 7 pm and April 23 at 2 pm.
The five 10-minute plays, which will have staged readings, were originally performed in Los Angeles at Native Voices at the Autry’s Annual Short Play Festival. They are: The Origin of Law by Diane Glancy (Cherokee), Four Women in Red by Laura Shamas (Chickasaw), The Tamale Man and Slow Your Roll by P.C. Verrone (Osage, Kiowa) and Flight by DeLanna Studi (Cherokee).
Admission to the event is free, and a free-will offering will be taken to benefit the United Methodist Native American Ministries. The festival coincides with Native American Sunday on April 23 at 5824 S. Datura St., Littleton, CO.
