First Flight Festival

First Flight Festival

First Flight Festival is Angels Theatre Company’s annual festival of new plays written by members of the Angels Play Writing Collective. This sixth annual festival features eight local playwrights, seventeen local actors, six local directors, local designers, artists, and more!

Unique to our area, Angels Theatre Company fosters local playwrights in their development of new work from inception to production, in the First Flight Festival and beyond.  This furthers the company's mission to nurture and celebrate theatre artists while engaging our community in quality live theatre.
