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. The festival needs the sponsorship of local businesses and friends of the theatre – if you can help contact Festival Coordinator Roslyn Johnson email firstname.lastname@example.org.
