The owners of the Labyrinth Press and the directors of H.O.T. Productions are pleased to announce the inaugural event of their newly formed alliance.

The Labyrinth Press is the popular coffee shop and restaurant housed on 4th Street in downtown Jamestown. Noted for its early morning brews, eclectic menu and evening “open mike” sessions, the Press is anxious to offer H.O.T. Productions a venue for their first theatrical venture.

H.O.T. Productions is a new theater group initiated by three local theater veterans: Adam Hughes, Adam Owens, Bob Terreberry.

“The three of us have been planning this opening for some time now. I retired from the theater five years ago, but this venture brought me back,” said Terreberry.

“What we are going to present is an evening of three original one-act plays. We have each written an act and get to direct it with local actors we admire and are eager to work with,” said Hughes.

Being part of a theatrical production can be a joy, but it can also be hugely time consuming. We’ve put together an evening that we think will be fun for us all; cast, crew and audience,” said Owens.

Frank Bessey, Labyrinth Press co-owner, explained that the Press was pleased to be part of this unique theatrical adventure; “We told H.O.T. Productions that we’d take care of the venue, ticket and refreshment aspects of the evening. They have the show all set. We’re excited to work with H.O.T. Productions.”

This inaugural H.O.T. Productions evening of theatre will be presented on the Labyrinth stage on Wednesday nights May 22 and 29, June 5 and 12. The refreshments served between acts are included as part of the $20 ticket price. The producers also advise future patrons that seating is limited; reservations are a MUST. Reservations can only be taken at 708-2471.
