GREAT ENTERTAINMENT
A one act play festival gives the chance for a friendly theatrical competition. You can see new plays, support your friends, meet new people and be thoroughly entertained.

It’s an exciting prospect when theatre companies from all over Victoria come together with the opportunity to showcase their talents to an audience not normally available to them and it’s also a marvellous chance for local people to see some wonderful theatrical talent close to home and without spending a fortune.

FAMDA hosts its seventeenth one-act play festival 19 & 20 August at the Foster War Memorial Arts Centre and you are invited to come and sample some (or all) of the amazing array of theatrical entertainment on offer.

GREAT FOOD
For the maximum convenience of playgoers FAMDA has organised in-house catering for the weekend.
You can buy soup and a roll from the hall kitchen for a quick, tasty, hot lunch each day.
Devonshire tea will be available throughout each day and supper will be served during set-up times on Saturday night.
In-house catering for dinner on Saturday provides promptly served meals, tasty and value for money along with camaraderie.

FESTIVAL ADMISSION PRICES
A Festival Pass costs just $25 and entitles you to see every play in the festival if you wish.
The Festival is divided into sessions, each with at least 3 plays. A session ticket costs $10.
The Young Players Festival admission price is $5 for adults and children are free.

Tickets will be on sale at the door prior to each session and between the individual plays.
