With the production of All You Can Eat, Half Moon Theater (HMT) partners with the Culinary Institute of America (CIA) for its fifth annual Ten-Minute Play Festival. All ten ten-minute plays by nationally recognized playwrights are set in familiar local eateries or feature food-related themes at hot spots around the Hudson Valley. Playwrights include Rob Handel, Rob Ackerman, Migdalia Cruz, Margaret Namulyanga, Darrah Cloud, Jenny Lyn Bader, David Simpatico, Lisa Kimball, Mark Burns and Kate Moira Ryan. All of the plays will be directed by HMT resident director Michael Schiralli, and most of Half Moon Theatre’s acting company will perform.

All You Can Eat will be performed at the Marriott Pavilion on the CIA campus in Hyde Park on Friday, June 12 at 8 p.m. and on Saturday, June 13 at 2 and 8 p.m. Tickets cost $25. The Marriott Pavilion is located at 1946 Campus Drive. For more information, visit
