The first prize for the Drill Hall Theatre Company’s short play competition Hot Shorts 10-minute play competition this year will be judged by Jeni Caffin, the Northern Rivers Writers’ Centre director and director of the Byron Bay Writers’ Festival; Lisa Walker, NRWC writer development manager; and an Australian actor who is a household name of stage and screen fame. All three are familiar with navigating their way through theatre scripts.
Drill Hall Theatre Company artistic director Mike Russo says there are some very fine plays among this year’s finalists, with six previous prize winners represented.
‘Audiences will enjoy the balance between comedy, satire and tragedy and should have fun deciding which play they will vote for to decide the audience prizes,’ says Mike.
The Drill Hall production team is sprucing up the theatre to make the experience more fun for audiences and hope you enjoy their efforts.
The 10 short plays will be performed each night at the Drill Hall Theatre, Mullumbimby, on Friday October 18 and Saturday October 19 at 8pm and Sunday October 20 at 5pm.
Tickets are $15 and $12 and can be pre-purchased from the Bookshop, Mullumbimby.
Anyone who would like to join in the fun at the Drill Hall, in any capacity at all, should contact DHTC president Michael Borenstein on 6684 9195.
