Of those twenty selected, those that are deemed most stage-worthy will be presented at each of the first three shows, Sept. 6, 7 and 8.

Two plays from each group (plus up to two “Wild Cards,” chosen by the judges) will move into the semi-finals on Friday and Saturday (Sept. 13 and 14) of the second weekend. Two shows each will then be chosen from these semi-final performances for the finals on Sunday afternoon, Sept. 15.
