Ten Minute Play Festival to Open September 12

September 6, 2019

The University of Montana Western’s Theatre students are pleased to announce Montana Western’s 17th annual Ten Minute Play Festival to be held September 12-16 as part of the Bank of Commerce Performing Arts Series. The performances will begin at 7:30 p.m. each night in the Small Auditorium (room 314) in Main Hall on the University of Montana Western campus.

10 minute plays

Over 60 students will perform as cast, crew and directors for the 20 plays presented. This year’s theme is “Oh Really” and will feature original plays written by students, professors and community members. Every nights’ program is different, since five plays will be presented each night.

At the end of the first four nights’ performances, the audience will vote for their two favorite shows, with the winners performing again for the final night of the performance. The overall winners will be chosen on the final night by the audience.

The directors all come from the Play Production Class taught on the campus this semester block by adjunct professor Larry Brazill. Individual tickets ($10 for general admission, $5 for seniors) will be sold at the door and are valid for each night of the festival. Montana Western students are admitted free of charge.

Some of the plays contain adult themes and language and are not suitable for children.
