The Short+Sweet Festival is on its way back to Townsville, where we'll be showcasing a unique lineup of ten-minute plays by local artists!
Registrations open September 1. Writers, Directors, and Independent Theatre Companies are encouraged to register. A lot can happen in 10 minutes - this is your chance to prove it!
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 professional, emerging and recreational 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.
