DramaFest 2019 Festival of One-Act Plays - LINE-UP OF PLAYS ANNOUNCED
Presented by Redland Performing Arts Centre with the support of Magda Community Artz


Little theatre will strut it's varied stuff at a special pocket-sized DramaFest 2019. In one entertainment-packed evening, eight prestigious community theatre groups will vie for the coveted DramaFest awards with productions that range from the sublime to the gobsmacking.

In a roller-coaster of emotions, audiences will experience the unlikely possibilities of a first date; see what happens when marriages become populated with fantasy characters and ideas; live in the head of a playwright under pressure; share the pain and love awakened by dementia and by disability; taste a classic; visit horror and zero in on some unexpected and in-your-face folk who don’t quite fit ...    

DramaFest 2019 will be held in the retro charm of the Redland Performing Arts Centre’s Auditorium on Saturday 27th July. Tickets are available at the door. DramaFest is big-sized entertainment with a budget-sized price tag: one $5 ticket will give you entry to twelve plays held over two sessions.

DramaFest 2019 Adjudicator is multi-award winning Australian actor, director, tutor and dramaturge, Barbara Lowing, well known for her film roles in Secrets and Lies, Mako; Island of Secrets and Tidelands. The adjudications and award presentations will take place after the last Saturday evening session.
