The Short+Sweet Festival is back in Townsville, featuring a unique lineup of ten-minute plays by local artists!
It's been a big year for short theatre in Queensland - the Brisbane and Gold Coast festivals have seen record-breaking numbers and genre-defying new work! Now we just can't wait to see what Townsville artists can do! Both independent theatre companies and individual directors are encouraged to register now. Show us your stuff - in ten minutes or less...
HOW TO REGISTER FOR THE FESTIVAL
There are two ways to register. Either you can submit as a group, with your own cast and your own script or concept. Or you can register as an individual director, and peruse through our shortlist of commended scripts before confirming a cast.
To register as a group (independent theatre company) please send an email to email@example.com including your script or concept proposal, the names of everyone in your team, and your full contact information.
To register as a director, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org along with a brief (50-100 word) bio describing your previous experience. We will respond by giving you access to our shortlisted scripts.
Registrations Close on Saturday 1st November
WHY BE A PART OF SHORT+SWEET?!
Develop skills, practice craft, explore an idea, or play around with something small on the side. Short+Sweet is an ideal sandbox opportunity, a space to put yourself and your work on the festival stage. It's a marquee venue, and a guaranteed audience, but the stakes aren't too high. If it doesn't go according to plan, nobody's going to come after you. But if you do happen to make something magical, then this is only just the beginning...
Short+Sweet brings together a melting pot of various artists all in the one place. We encourage you to work with new people, or try something you haven't done before. We're all here for different reasons, but at the end of the day it's all just about one thing - ten minutes and a stage.
