It was a thrill to be involved in InspiraTO! Not only did I get to see my play "Campfire Stories" performed for the first time, it was in front of a large, appreciative audience. Plus, I was not only entertained by all the other plays, I was INSPIRED. So much so that I've already started working on a play to submit to next year's festival -- the experience was so rewarding, I want to repeat it. - Keith Davidson (Campfire Stories)

2017 THEME: GROW UP
What I have always enjoyed about the festival itself is the immediacy of the stories. With only ten minutes to entice, excite, and entertain, the shows at InspiraTO set quite a challenge for themselves. I recommend checking out all of the shows to see how ten minutes can tell the story of a lifetime. - Jeff Kerr (Mooney on Theatre)Exciting volunteer positions now open. Click here.
