Hunter TAFE performing arts students are in the final stages of
preparation for the annual Clegg Festival, a smorgasbord of
thought-provoking short plays that have been written and directed by
the students themselves.
Taking place at Newcastle's Civic Playhouse from 29 September to 8
October, the first week of the festival will feature students' plays
under the theme, Bite Size. These dramatic offerings are all between
six and 15 minutes and are the work of Hunter TAFE's Diploma of Arts
(Acting) writing students.
Some of the themes explored by the plays are vampires, mental health,
fear, Elvis Presley, the Russian royal family and the end of the world.
The second week of the Clegg Festival is called Upsize and will
involve longer plays, around 40 minutes each. These have been written
by Advanced Diploma of Arts (Acting) students.
Break a leg, everyone!
Tickets for both Bite Size and Upsize are $20, or $10 for students.
