The biggest festival of ten-minute theatre in the world, with plays from local and international writers. Short+Sweet Theatre starts with an annual call for submissions from playwrights and Independent Theatre Companies across the globe. Each year around 2000 scripts and submissions are sent in.

Short +Sweet Acting and Directing Workshops

11-16 November

5pm to 6pm daily

$10 for each workshop or $50 for all workshops.

Acting Workshops focussed on acting techniques and give actors a clear and practical understanding about what is required of an actor for auditions. Develop an    understanding of what ‘NOT ACTING’ means. Identify and have an awareness of    one’s own personal habits (good or bad) and an understanding of the necessary    tools to make any changes required to be a successful working actor in the marketplace. It will give them experience in auditioning with and without a script and   with and without time preparation.


Basic rules for directors and the chance  to put those rules into effect immediately

1. How to think like a director, from script structure to design, props and costume.

2. What traits are you looking for in an actor?

Workshops funding support by the Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF) – a Queensland government and Townsville City Council partnership to support local arts and culture.
