Norfolk Island Theatre Festival

28 September 2019 - 06 October 2019

Norfolk Amateur Theatrical Society (NATS) will be hosting their 22nd annual Theatre Festival “Theatre in Paradise” from 28 September 2019. This Festival is increasingly popular with visiting companies from Australia and New Zealand who compete for a number of valuable prizes and the coveted Trans-Tasman Trophy for the Best Production.

Plays can be a one-act play or an excerpt from a longer play and must be between 20 and 45 minutes long with a minimum of two speaking parts. Plays can be drama, comedy, farce or musical. A group may enter up to two plays. Entries are judged by a visiting Adjudicator, who offers constructive feedback on each performance to actors and directors alike. In 2019 the Adjudicator will be from New Zealand. The Festival also includes workshops at which participants can enjoy new theatre experiences. 

What better place to meet others with a passion for theatre, make new friends, and enjoy the delights of our beautiful island than at Norfolk Island Theatre in Paradise.
