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 opportunity to dapple in the arts, develop a new work, explore your hidden talent, or harness your skills. It is a space to put yourself and your work on the festival stage with no personal financial risk.
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.
WRITE | DIRECT | ACT | SUBMIT | VOLUNTEER
PLEASE NOTE: to ensure wide participation opportunities in Short+Sweet, participants are restricted to the following number of plays: writers can only have ONE work included in the season, directors can only direct ONE play (regardless of whether it be in an ITC or a standalone submission), and an actor can only perform in TWO plays per season.*
This does not limit the amount of scripts, ITC concepts, director or actor applications submitted for consideration, so be brave and register!
*Specific circumstances such as Crash Test Drama or special invitations from the Festival Director may be exceptions to this rule.
