Levels, the Great Neck Library’s cultural center for teenagers is proud to present its first online virtual show, The Quaran-Teen Short Play Festival, Live Online, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Aug. 13, 14 and 15 at 8:00 p.m.

The Quaran-Teen Short Play Festival features ten original short plays by students live-streamed directly to your home, as they perform the plays live over Zoom in their own homes.  It’s an amazing blend of technology and art, and an innovative way to allow theatre to continue in these difficult times.

The plays cover subjects that include families in quarantine, the founding fathers, an unlikely hero’s journey, teen romance, cults, mimes, cosmetics, astronomy, babies – and even an original short musical.

The plays are written and directed by seventh-grade through college age students Willie Benjamin, Samuel Calto, Adi Elkarat, Tals Lana Elyaho, Aliza Fine, Ava Hoffman, Kylie Hoffman, Daisy Korman, Jolie Nassi, Ben Pitt-Stoller and Britt Trachtenberg. The cast includes Willie Benjamin, Jack Brenner, Samuel Calto, Aliza Fine, Ava Hoffman, Kylie Hoffman, Shira Lichter, Sarah Munson, Joel Orquera, Leah Schader, Adam Schiff, Daliah Segal, Shirel Shivamehr, Jessica Tamari, Britt Trachtenberg, Jonathan Wu, Brenner Yellis, Maurice Zalta, Nina Zar and others. Original music is by Samuel Calto and Omeed Tartak, and Nina Zar serves as producer.

Established in 1974, Levels presents several fully-staged theatrical productions a year. All Levels productions are traditionally directed, produced and performed by students seventh-grade through college age.

The link to watch online for FREE will be posted at greatnecklibrary.org/levels-is. The production features mild use of adult language. For more information, contact Levels at (516) 466-8055 ext. 216 or email: levels@greatnecklibrary.org.
