Who can enter?
We encourage anyone to enter One Act Play, including independent theatre artists, writers, directors, school, TAFE or University students and theatre groups in the Lake Macquarie, Newcastle, Hunter and Central Coast regions.
What should my play be about?
With no specific theme or category, your play can be about anything! The Festival Producer encourages you to find inspiration from your own life experiences. What are the themes in your life? How do you feel about the state of the world? We want your most authentic ideas, thoughts and feelings. All genres are welcome, from comedy to drama.
How long does my play need to be?
Plays must be between 10-25 minutes in length. Plays can be excerpts of full-length plays and performance rights are the responsibility of the performers group/school/theatre company.
What age do I need to be to enter?
Open to ages 10 and up.
What is the cost to enter?
$25 for each play/group.
EFTPOS only - paid at the meet and greet session on the 10th of October.
What if I can’t come to the meet and greet on the 10th of October?
Payment can be made at any Lake Macquarie Library branch, or at Warners Bay Theatre by appointment. Please let the Producer know if you need to arrange alternate payment.
Where will the festival be held?

What if my entry isn't accepted?
All entrants will have an opportunity to develop their script with the help of the Producer. You will be invited to a free of charge workshop to produce an independent production in the near future. More details will be provided at the meet and greet session on the 10th of October.
