Short Play FestivalR05_0002 ARKFEST

The weekend of march 24/25. 2018 saw a long and interesting, enjoyable weekend of theatre.
A young lady, Paula Armstrong, came to the magaement of Ark Theatre with a ten page proposal of a weelend of dhort plays, no play iver 10 minutes. Ark Theatre agreed and off it went. The President, and one of the organisers, Rosey Cullinan, told your correspndent that the succees exceeded all expectations.
More than 130 plays were receoived from all around Australia and the committeee had the unenveiable task of culling such good works to a shortlist of 30 plays. The ictorian local theatre companies chose a play from the given 30 to be presented by their director and actors during the Arkfest.
To attract and inspie audiences ArkTheatre did a fabulous job. Coming up the drive to the theatre on the left was a van selling voffeee, hot chocoate and nibbles, very appreciated as the climae was cold and wet. On the right was a tent roof with, at lunchbreak, a singer and guitarist. On the right past the coffee was a sasage sizzle and upon entry on the left wwas a canteen selling pise, sausage rolls, other nibbles and drinks.
A large theatre with most seats taken by the audience and players who came form all over Victoria and interstae.
The plays were presented in heats of six with a five minute break between each play. Sets were smple or non-existent which did not distract from the performances.
|Major prize winners were:
Best Director- Dexter Bourke for Next in Line written by Chris Hodson and presented by the 1812 Theatre.
Best Actress- Aimme Short in Corpse Candles written by Deborah Sheldon and presented by How Dramatic Theate.
Best Actor- Phillip Stevenson in Close Enough presented by The Misfits.
Best Production - Anak written and directed by Tamara Dahmen and presented by Hartwell Players.
The Peoples Choice Award was Rosaline written by Tamara Dahmen, directed by Andrew Tomazos.
Ark Theatre, Paula Armstrong, Rosey Cullinan and the technical team are to be strongly congratulkated for taking the task of a festival as such and succeeding beond their wildest anticipatios.
As the theatre is prt f a school the team could not bump in until after school hours and apparently the technical crew did not sleep on Friday night. In fact one of the adjudicators only had tow and hlf hours sleep the whole weekend. To think that all this is voluntary, the dedication to theatre is amazing.
significantly 30 Australian writers ave had their plays performed and many actors, directors have been seen by companies who have never had he chance to catch up with who is available.
The Arkfest was so successful that Ark theatre are looking ahead to make it a bi-annual feature. So keep you eye on these pages for the latest updates.

2018 Season

'Night, Mother

The scene is the living room of a small house on a remote country road, which is shared by thelma Cates and her daughter Jessie.
Now in her mid-thirties, Jessie's life has been stale and unrewarding.
As the play begins Jessie calmly tells her mother that she inteds to kill herself that night with her father's service revolver. At first Thelma refuses to take her seriously but as Jessie quietly goes about tidying the house and preparing for her death, Thelma realises the depth of her daughter's despair. Becoming increasingly desparate and helpless, Thelma uses every tactic and trick she can think of to change Jessie's profound decision.
Emotions ebb and flow as mother and daughter exchange past grievances, struggles and misunderstandings, while time trickles down relentlessly to the play's clomax.
Season: May 18 - June 9. 2018

Burke's Company

The award-winning play concerns the tragic 1860 expedition of Burke and Wills, the first explorers to cross Australia from South to North.

King is the only member of the advance party to survive. The action then revolves around the delirious recollections of King with the guilt ridden Brahe who was supposed to wait for the dvance party to return to Coopers Creek.
The narrative shifts back and forth, introducing other crucial characters who flesh out the story, the guilt, pragmatism, heroism and stoicism.
We all know this very Melbourne story but this vision by Bill Read treats it in a very different way.

The women written in Bombshells struggle - sometimes hilariously, sometimes tragically - to bridge the chasm between the wilderness of their inner worlds and the demands of their outer worlds.
'And humour at the end is ur saviour.

Whether it's a barbie in our backyard area, movie nights or other get togethers, we realise our volunteers are our lifeblood and a pretty social bunch too.
