It's been a while...BUT IT'S BACK!

Don't have anything to do on the June long weekend?

Well...You do now!

On Sunday, 9 June SHYAC will be presenting a fast paced day of drama. Think 8 plays, 8 directors, 40-60 actors, 3 hours to rehearse and an afternoon of fun before show time!! Then, BAM the plays will be performed in front of an audience!

This foot to the floor, fast and furious event will get your creative juices flowing,  open to youth aged 8-25 years. This unique event encompasses all areas of the performing arts. SHYAC is providing budding writers, directors and actors the chance to strut their stuff and show us their talents in this exciting and innovative event! There will be PRIZES awarded for Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Director, Best Producer and Best Script. 



PLAYWRIGHTS: Have an idea for a play? Get writing!                            

Your play needs to be 5-8 minutes long, set for 5-7 actors (most will be under 18 years). The story line can be about anything however, somewhere in the script this saying..."I knew that was going to happen!" must appear in the script

Plays need to be submitted by 17 MAY to:

For those playwrights wanting to submit a play please find uploaded two examples of scripts from ACTcelerate 2014 that have been formatted in a clear and easy to read way. This formatting is what we require for ACTcelerate 2019. NB: Playwrights can also participate in the event as an actor or director, however, not in the play you have written.
