Welcome to Popcorn Falls, a small American town whose only claim to fame – their namesake waterfall – has dried up. Now bankrupt, their last chance is a large grant that can only be used if the town produces a play in a week. One big problem: no playhouse. Another problem: no play. Led by the Mayor and the local handyman, the enterprising townsfolk try to rise to the challenge and prove that art can save the world.

“We’re now in a moment of great anxiety at the national level, of course; and art of all kinds has the amazing power to simultaneously distract us and re-focus us in unexpected ways. So if a light night of theater is what your soul craves, consider Popcorn Falls.”
Jenn McKee, Encore Michigan
“Community theater and small-town life come in for some ribbing in Popcorn Falls. Described as Waiting for Guffman meets Greater Tuna, the play is set in the bankrupt town of Popcorn Falls, where desperate inhabitants agree to stage a play in just a week in order to win a large grant to save their community.”
