One Act Play Festival!

SPAT ONE ACT PLAYS FESTIVAL – Information

What is it?

  • A performance of three plays in one show, with a short interval between each play, each play being approximately 30 minutes long
  • Ideal for directors and actors as the shows are shorter (easier to learn lines!), and are generally staged as simply as possible with a minimum of set, lighting and costume requirements

How it works

  • There are three directors / teams, each of which ‘own’ one play
  • To help you select a good resource is www.apt.org.au
  • We would like to see plays around 30 pages long, with a cast of 5 or fewer – but we’re open to longer / more cast if it’s something you’re passionate about
  • Please make sure the plays are suitable for an audience including younger people, ideally twelve
  • SPAT will organise copies of the play, copyright / performance rights as requiredS
  • SPAT will organise a casting session for all the plays together
  • The directors can then discuss who they want – ideally everyone who auditions will get a part in some play
  • SPAT will send out the cast list
  • Directors are then responsible for organizing rehearsals and making sure the play is ready to be performed. We’ll attend some rehearsals and will provide advice and coaching as required (it probably isn’t!), and be available to help if you hit a road block
  • We will help organize the publicity, food and drink, lighting, sound, costumes, sets, backstage staff, covid requirements, ticketing etc. So Directors and Actors can do the fun stuff!

  • Performances: Friday (7:30pm), Saturday (7:30pm), Sunday Matinee (2:30pm)
