Local talent takes center stage again this October long weekend as the Festival Of Regional Theatre (FORT) returns to Goulburn Performing Arts Centre (GPAC).
The long weekend program will feature the World Premiere of a brand-new play Russian Doll, cultural and contemporary dance theatre by internationally acclaimed artists, along with a late-night cabaret performance in the Meeting Place bar area.
FORT wraps up with One Act Wonders – GPACS popular short play competition that this year has attracted entrants from far and wide, and sees actors, directors and writers competing for cash prizes and trophies.
GPAC Manager Raina Savage said, “FORT has proved to be a great way to promote GPAC and attract people to Goulburn, while offering talented local and regional creatives the chance to present their work in a professional theatre context and be seen by a much wider audience.”
Mayor Peter Walker said, “Complimenting the Lilac City Festival over the long weekend, this fun festival offers something for everyone– whether as actors, directors or producers who want to put their work on display or for audiences who will be able to enjoy a wide variety of theatre from drama to comedy and everything in between.”
For tickets or further information, the GPAC Box Office is open Tuesday to Friday 10am – 3pm, phone 02 4823 4999, or visit www.goulburnpac.com.au.
