Attic Salt has a great year planned, and we hope you'll join us for all of it! Check out some of the shows and events we have in 2022:
Cry it Out, by Molly Smith Metzler Coming in September 2022 Acclaimed writer Molly Smith Metzler (Shameless, Orange is the New Black, etc.) holds both a microscope and a megaphone to the joys and perils that today’s mothers face. This hilarious and heart-warming comedy takes a sharp and honest look at the power of female friendship, the dilemma of going back to work after being home with a newborn, and the effect that economic and social class has on parenthood in America.
LIVE readings of 2020 and 2021 Playwright's Contest Winners Coming in November 2022 We've been asking playwrights all over the country to submit their best new works to our contest, and we picked the best of the best. Due to Covid, we haven't been able to perform the readings live, as we had planned. But we still have those scripts and we are FINALLY going to allow you to see these wonderful works!.
Santa Claus Conquers the Martians, by Rodney Smith Coming December 2022 Acclaimed local playwright and director Rodney Smith has offered to take the usually holiday fare and turn it on its head by adapting this campy and (unintentionally) funny film from the 1960s for our stage. I'd explain the plot, but there's not much to it outside the title! Whether you're a fan of the movie or just looking for an alternative to Christmas schmaltz, you're going to laugh and cheer at the bumbling Kinmar, Voldar, Dropo and the sexy Mrs., Candi Clause. And isn't that what the holidays are all about.
Attic Salt has been producing shows since 1998. We've toured shows for children all over the country, and have enjoyed sold-out houses of our main stage shows all over Asheville. All shows are cast by open audition.
