Rockhampton Short+Sweet Festival Just 2 Weeks Away

By David Bell

Whether you own real estate in Rockhampton or you just happen to be in the area later this month, fans of the theatre could be in for a treat.

On Friday 21 and Saturday 22, the Walter Reid Cultural Centre will be hosting the Rockhampton Short+Sweet play festival, a collection of 11 short plays from local playwrights.

Brought to life by actors and directors in the area, the plays will be judged in a number of categories, including best overall production, best actor and actress, best director and best script.

However, if you want to take part – don't worry. The Audience Choice award gives those in attendance a chance to vote for their favourites.

A majority of the playwrights involved in the festival took a weekend playwriting workshop earlier this year with accomplished veteran of the industry Alex Broun.

Short+Sweet festival director Sean Dennehy also conducted directing and acting classes with the participants last month.

If you are interested in supporting the local drama scene, the plays start at 7:30pm on both the Friday and Saturday, with tickets costing $20 for adults and $15 for concessions.

A full list of plays and playwrights involved in the festival are available at the Rockhampton Regional Council website.
