"The 2016 8x10 TheatreFest" — April 21 to May 8, 2016

The 2017 8x10 TheatreFest
Weathervane's Annual Contest and Festival of 10-Minute Plays
July 13 to 16, 2017

Weathervane Playhouse celebrates the art of the short-format play with the seventh annual 8x10 TheatreFest. Eight plays, 10 minutes each! And now our audiences will get to pick the winners!

Now in its its seventh year, this annual new-works play festival received nearly 150 submissions for the 2017 outing. Our volunteer judges have read all of these subsmissions and have chosen the eight finalist plays. All the plays submitted had two things in common — each was 10 minutes long and each featured a box of tarot cards. The tarot cards served as the “inspiration” for this year’s contest. This item, or prop, was chosen by the audience members who attended last year's 8x10 TheatreFest.

THE 2017 WINNERS AND FINALISTS

Right after the final performance on Sunday, July 16, 2017, all of the ballots from the weekend's three performances were tallied, and the winners — as determined by the audience members — were announced!
