It's summertime and the livin' is easy at The Arscht Center.  In partnership with Actors Theatre of Louisville, Summer Theatre Festival celebrates their exciting 15th season! 

This year's line-up includes an impressive variety of 5 to 20 minute one-act comedies and dramas.  A full-length world-premiere work, Camp Kappawanna, written by singer/songwriter Lisa Loeb and Miami playwright Marco Ramirez will be featured in the festival's run.  The series includes the well-know "Signature Shorts" and the naughty "Undershorts" for the over 17 adult audience.
