Brisbane Arts Theatre 24th Annual Drama Festival


Brisbane Arts Theatre 24th Annual Drama Festival

Brisbane Arts Theatre 24th Annual Drama Festival begins tonight!

This is the fourth leg of the South East Queensland Drama Festival Circuit so we are well and truly underway! This morning, with the expertise of Simon Van der Spoel (Channel 7), we shot a fun TVC for the upcoming Sunshine Coast Theatre Festival. In the meantime, see what you can at Brisbane Arts Theatre this weekend!

Yours truly will be adjudicating. I’ll post all results here after the event.

From the early 1970s to 1987 The Brisbane Warana Drama Festival was staged each year at the Brisbane Arts Theatre and was one of the major theatrical events in Brisbane. When the Warana Festival folded, the Arts Theatre began the current Drama Festival, under its own banner. The first was held in 1988 and continues today!

There are two sections – Youth (for performers up to and including 18 years of age) and Open (for performers of all ages).

All tickets are $12.
