Congratulations to Susan Mattocks, Michelle Rigby and the whole team behind VIRTUAL REALITY! After taking out the Best Overall Production Award in Townsville 2014, they presented the show again at the Queensland Gala Finals this weekend, playing alongside 11 other works of the best theatre and cabaret from Brisbane and the Gold Coast. VIRTUAL REALITY held its own in this space and was greeted with warm reception from the 500-strong audience in the Powerhouse Theatre.

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!

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.

It's been a big year for short theatre in Queensland - the Brisbane and Gold Coast festivals have seen record-breaking numbers and genre-defying new work! Now we just can't wait to see what Townsville artists have got to show us!
Join us to celebrate the best short performances in Queensland…
After presenting over 60 new works of 10min theatre and cabaret, Short+Sweet has finally arrived at its grand closing night – a showcase of the best of the best.
After much deliberating by anonymous judges and audience members, the finalists have been chosen and are coming back to reprise their sharp short shows in the Powerhouse Theatre for one night only.
Come to see your favourites from Brisbane, Gold Coast and Townsville present their work once more. An awards ceremony will conclude the evening, recognising excellent work by individuals and teams.
Don't forget to vote for your favourite shows to give them that extra push!!
Short + Sweet has three aims – Develop, Showcase & Create Excellence. In accordance to that, this year we are introducing a range of Master-classes being conducted by local and international experts.
Participation fee will be PHP 500 per Master-Class.
