The 8x10 TheatreFestThe 2018 8x10 TheatreFest
Weathervane's Annual Contest and Festival
of 10-Minute Plays
July 19 to 22, 2018

Weathervane Playhouse celebrates the art of the short-format play with the eighth annual 8x10 TheatreFest. Eight plays, 10 minutes each!

Now in its its eighth year, this annual new-works play festival received nearly 150 submissions for the 2018 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 sock monkey! The sock monkey 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 "final eight" plays for the 2018 8x10 TheatreFest will be performed on the Weathervane stage from July 19 to 22, 2018. Audiences will vote to select the first-, second- and third-place winners of the festival. Audience members will also have the opportunity to help select the 2019 festival's inspirational prop! The Sunday matinee will be followed by a reception and the announcement of the winners.
