SHORT+SWEET ILLAWARRA THEATRE 2019

In the place where the mountains meet the sea, Short+Sweet Illawarra returns for its second annual season of ten-minute plays.  The Illawarra is an untapped theatre heartland, boasting hundreds of actors, writers and directors. The Illawarra supports a vibrant community theatre scene second to none in regional Australia.

This year, we will also be expanding our Illawarra festival to include Comedy, Cabaret, Youth and Film as well as our own Gala Final Showcase.

With a focus on regional artist development, Short+Sweet will look at providing a pathway for regional emerging artists to have their work seen by the wider theatre community, as well as contribute to the region’s diversity in its performing arts community.
