January 13 to 23, 2022

Weathervane celebrates the art of the short-format play with our 10th 8x10 TheatreFest. These submissions would have been seen during our 2019-2020 season. Each play is written with a specific prop selected by the previous season’s audiences.  

Each of the eight 10-minute plays in this year's festival feature a common item: a take-out food contaner!

You, the audience, 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 "signature inspirational prop for the 2023 8x10 TheatreFest! The final Sunday matinee will be followed by a reception and the announcement of the winners.
