Sunshine Coast Theatre Festival 2013 Results

SUNSHINE COAST THEATRE FESTIVAL 2013 RESULTS

What a MASSIVE weekend! Our best Festival yet! Were you there? Which was your favourite play? The Audience Choice award went to one of my favourite productions GOD OF CARNAGE.

 

Best Play went to my other favourite production 10 000 Cigarettes. These performances served as perfect examples of finding and playing truthfully the bitter reality that makes really good comedy, the need for bold and insightful direction, and the impact of exceptional ensemble work.

 

In previous years I’ve been able to commit to attending the festival in its entirety and taking my own notes each session, as well as sharing the adjudicator’s comments. This year I couldn’t say NO to a few events and deadlines either side of the festival! Speaking of deadlines, there’s one looming so let’s wrap up this post!

Congratulations to all involved, and thank you to the committee and the hard working volunteers. The festival would not go ahead without you.

 

Loved that our Adjudicator, Andrea Moor, commented on the lack of Brisbane faces in the audience and we’re hoping that we see more of you up here in the future.

 

Come up for a weekend of theatre and beautiful beaches!

 

Andrea will tell you how good the Peninsula is. And yes, we agree with you – the standard of theatre needs to be consistently good to get you here more often – and that’s what we’re working so hard to achieve year ’round as the Sunshine Coast Theatre Alliance. We know we’re well on the way! P.S. Look out for some BIG changes in the way companies will need to secure their place in next year’s Sunshine Coast festival!
