8x10 TheatreFest

8x10 TheatreFest
Thursday, Jan 20, 2022 at 7:30pm
Weathervane Playhouse
1301 Weathervane Lane

Weathervane celebrates the art of the short-format play with our 10th 8x10 TheatreFest. These submissions would have been seen during our 2019-2020 season. Each play is written with a specific prop selected by the previous season’s audiences.

Each of the eight 10-minute plays in this year's festival feature a common item: a take-out food container!

You, the audience, will vote to select the first-, second- and third-place winners of the festival. Audience members will also have the opportunity to help select the "signature inspirational prop for the 2023 8x10 TheatreFest! The final Sunday matinee will be followed the announcement of the winners.
