Leicestershire and Rutland One Act Play Festival

12 April @ 7:30 pm - 13 April @ 10:00 pm BST


The annual Leicestershire and Rutland One Act Play festival is a competition for local amateur theatre groups performing one act of a play. A great opportunity to see local groups and hear professional critique of the performance, learn more about theatre and performance in general.

Have you ever wondered how good your local amateur theatre group is when performing. This allows you to see in action local theatre groups and hear professional critique of their performance. You will be entertained and educated at the same time about theatre and the art of performance.

Amateur groups can also go forward into a national competition for the All England One Act Play Festival. Previous entries from Leicester have gone on to win the national competition. So there is definitely talent in Leicestershire and Rutland that can give a performance to match many a professional show.

For the price of a ticket you can see two or three groups perform and act as your own judge as to how good our local talent is on stage. There are three sessions, Friday evening, Saturday afternoon and Saturday evening with the awards ceremony to conclude.
