The 2011 8x10 TheatreFest
Weathervane's Annual Contest and Festival of 10-Minute Plays

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

The "final eight" plays for the 2011 8x10 TheatreFest were performed on the Weathervane stage from July 15 to 17, 2011. A panel of judges selected the first- and second-place winners of the festival, while audiences voted to select the festival's "Fan Favorite." Audience members also had the opportunity to help select the 2012 festival's inspirational prop!
