The end of June sees Wagga School of Arts bring to the stage the Riverina Water Ten X 10 Play Fest.

This festival of ten-minute plays has become one of the favourite theatrical events in the city.

Now running for 11 years, this Festival offers a wide variety of plays written by local, National and International Playwrights.

Their work is brought to the stage by an ensemble of local actors and directors.

Wagga School of Arts proudly celebrates 2021 and 11 years sponsorship of Riverina Water.

The chosen theme for the Play Fest Nostalgia and Nonsense resonates with how people felt during COVID-19.

Addressing this theme, more than 56 plays were submitted for assessment by three state assessors.

The result is 10 wonderful plays by 10 selected writer's works.

The package of Ten X 10 Play Fest incorporates 31 actors and 10 directors to bring to life the work of the selected writers.

Audience members have often commented that the variety that is packed into a ten-minute package is amazing.

Directors both new and experienced are working with their casts.

Some of these are well known, Diana Lovett, Tracey Lonergan, Saasha Mc Millan to name a few, whilst others are new, enthusiastic and eager to learn the skill.
