Short+Sweet Theatre Gala Final (Friday, 21 March 2014)
Short+Sweet’s night of nights… the glittering climax of the biggest little theatre festival in the world. The top 12 short plays from this year’s bumper crop – all less than 10 minutes long.
The best of the fest fight it out for glory and a host of great prizes in front of a packed house and entertainment industry judges.
Friday 21 March at the Seymour Centre York Theatre from 7.30pm.
Short+Sweet Variety Gala (Saturday, 22 March 2014)
Short+Sweet’s biggest, brightest gala ever! A ‘mixed plate’ of tasty ten-minute bites showcasing the best four from each of its three bumper Sydney summer festivals: Theatre, Cabaret and Dance.
Short+Sweet is the biggest short-form performing arts festival in the world and Sydney’s – the original and longest-running season – is the jewel in the crown.
More than 180 plays, 35 cabaret and 45 dance pieces featured over the Sydney summer at two parallel inner west theatres.
Now, with the finals of the three festivals done and dusted, the Seymour hosts one last spectacular ‘encore’ boasting the best of the fests.
Saturday 22 March at The Seymour Centre York Theatre from 7.30pm

Arts NSW has terminated a $1.5 million, four-year contract with Short + Sweet Productions Australia Ltd, the company responsible for delivering a regional theatre festival, due to a ''serious breach'' of the funding agreement.
The full Festival line up for Short+Sweet Dubai at DUCTAC in the Mall of the Emirates from February 5th to 22nd, has been announced.
It's a fantastic programme featuring Dubai's top theatre companies as well as the city's best writers, actors and directors. The Festival also welcomes companies from all over the UAE - Abu Dhabi, Sharjah and Ras al-Khaimah - as well as visiting companies from Pakistan and even New York.
We are now accepting submissions for works for our two Wildcard programs! For more information please click the 'Festival Submissions' tab above.
Submissions close January 6th, 2014.
As a part of the 2014 Festival, which has a focus on the professional development of the artists involved, we have implement a mentoring program. A range of Sydney-based professional dance artists have volunteered their time to work with and give feedback to our choreographers during their creative process. A massive thank you to our amazing mentors!
