IPSWICH Little Theatre will celebrating its 67th year of One-act Play Festivals when it hosts numerous plays over the weekend of August 11-13.
The Incinerator Theatre in Burley Griffin Drive will be once again filled to capacity as performers take to the intimate stage.
Since the inception of the Drama Festival in 1955, the competition has gone from strength to strength and attracts many local and regional drama groups to the area.
Over the years the festival has been held at the Town Hall, the Ipswich Girls Grammar School and in 2001 the decision was made to move it back to the Incinerator.
Of course, festivals don’t just happen without the dedicated work of many directors over the years organizing and creating a wonderful friendly competition for all to enjoy.
This year’s adjudicator, Allana Noyes, hails from Toowoomba and is looking forward to providing valuable feedback over the three days to the groups performing.
Not only do the dramatic juices flow over the weekend, it’s also a social event with catering and bar facilities available for visitors to enjoy our wonderful grounds.
The public are welcome to attend the various sessions over the weekend.
The cost is $10-15 per session.
There will be a 10-minute play session, youth and open sessions.
Tickets and more information are available online at the ILT website.
