Founded in 2009 by Old Academy Players’ member Chris Schenk, the Summer One-Act Bonanza is an opportunity to feature new playwrights and directors on the Old Academy stage. Chris, who spent four years with Old Academy as an actor, writer, producer, publicity chairperson and newsletter editor, produced the first two seasons of the One-Act Bonanza until moving to Chicago. He lost his fight with cancer in March 2012, but his legacy lives on through this delightful annual event.

Constructed in 1819, the Old Academy building has been the OAP home since 1932. Old Academy Players, providing continuous community theater since 1923, featured the acting debuts of both Grace Kelly and Robert Prosky.
