Minnesota Association of Community Theatres’ biennial short play festival, Fast Fest, will be held August 19 & 20 at the Pipestone Performing Arts Center in Pipestone, MN, hosted by The Calumet Players.
The festival kicks off with a Friday night welcome party at the Pipestone Performing Arts Center. On Saturday, performances (and possible workshops) continue throughout the day and evening, followed by a networking opportunity.
Fast Fest is open to community theatres, high school and college theatre programs, and ad hoc groups. Each performance will have 5 minutes to setup, 20 minutes to perform, and 5 minutes to strike. A table and four chairs are provided. Performing companies can bring in one additional set piece and costumes and props as needed. There will be a short, moderator-led colloquy after each performance.
Registration for performing companies is free to MACT members. Non-MACT-members will be charged a $20 registration fee which includes a 6 month MACT membership. Registration deadline for performing companies is June 20, 2016. Go www.mact.net for more information and for registration forms.
