Matamata Chronicle - - Your Paper, Your Place - REXINE HAWES

Script writ­ers have im­pressed judges of the Mata­mata Short ‘n’ Sweet Fes­ti­val.

Since De­cem­ber, script writ­ers of all skill level have been busy writ­ing for the Mata­mata Dra­matic So­ci­ety’s Short ‘n’ Sweet Fes­ti­val. The fes­ti­val is a col­lec­tion of six, 10-minute plays, writ­ten by Mata­mata play­wrights.

Four­teen scripts were en­tered and the top six have been cho­sen. The plays will be per­formed in June.

Au­di­tions will be held this month and the over­all win­ner will be an­nounced at the fes­ti­val.

Fes­ti­val or­gan­iser and Mata­mata Dra­matic So­ci­ety mem­ber Colin Kem­plen says judges com­mented on how well pre­pared the scripts were, ready for the stage.

Scripts were all en­tered with pseu­do­nyms. The top six plays: What Would You Do by Richard Prevett; If Youth Knew…If Age Could, by Wanda Brit­tain; Coun­cilling Re­quired by Chris Stead; Thanks A Mil­lion, by Colin Kem­plen; Karms, by Chris Stead and For Want of a Charger, by Suzie Wil­cox.

If you are in­ter­ested in au­di­tion­ing, con­tact Colin Kem­plen on 888 4172.
