Short ‘n’ sweet re­turns

Matamata Chronicle - - Your Paper, Your Place -

Ever con­sid­ered your­self a play­wright in the mak­ing?

If so, why not put your play writ­ing ca­pa­bil­i­ties to the test?

The Mata­mata Dra­matic So­ci­ety is call­ing all play­wrights to en­ter the Short and Sweet play com­pe­ti­tion.

The com­pe­ti­tion is part of a fes­ti­val to be held June/July 2017. Each play must be around 10 min­utes long and have three-to­four char­ac­ters.

From the en­tries, six plays will be se­lected to be per­formed, with au­di­tions to be held next year.

This is the fourth time the com­pe­ti­tion has been held, with Dr Greg Dunn win­ning the com­pe­ti­tion in 2014 with his play Free Park­ing.

Fes­ti­val co-or­di­na­tor Colin Kem­plen says the fes­ti­val is a great op­por­tu­nity for any­one who has ever wanted to ex­pe­ri­ence the world of the­atre.

‘‘This will be a won­der­ful in­tro­duc­tion into the the­atre and an op­por­tu­nity for new ac­tors to get along­side ‘old stagers’.’’

En­tries, in­clud­ing the writ­ers pseu­do­nym, must be in by Jan­uary 31. Con­tact Kem­plen on 888 4172 or 0274 478 347 or by email­ing mata­matadra­matic@gmail.com for en­try de­tails.

Re­porter Rex­ine Hawes, who has never per­formed on stage, will use Short and Sweet as a re­porter chal­lenge - if her au­di­tion is suc­cess­ful.
