2018 Festival of One-Act Plays

Beenleigh Theatre Group proudly hosts the Beenleigh One Act Play Festival on the first weekend of August every year. Entrants travel from across South-East Queensland to perform youth, open and ten-minute plays for adjudication. Awards are presented on the Sunday afternoon of the festival. BTG members attend the festival free, others can enjoy 4-5 plays per session for a very reasonable admission. If you are interested in entering a play you are invited to download the Info and Entry documents from this page.

We’re drawing back the ‘Curtains’ to showcase our second show for 2018!

Directed by Andrew Cockroft Penman, with Musical Direction by Julie Whiting and Choreography by Jackson Kook.
