One Act Play Festival

FB_cover_2017 (2)

Seymour Performers Workshop is proud to host the One Act Play Festival on Saturday 9th & 10th of September.  Theatre companies from across the state will bring their most exciting works to Seymour for a festival representing the very best in community theatre.

One Act plays are to theatre what short stories are to writing. They are the art and the story distilled to its essence. The narrative must be tight, the action meaningful and characters created and presented with precision.

Entries are now open for theatre companies, schools and individuals to be part of this fantastic showcase. Performances can be one act plays or monologues and there are also youth categories plus some great cash prizes to be won!

Download an Information Pack here. Entries close at  5pm on Sunday 20th August 2017 For further information  email

Dirty Rotten Scoundrels Comes to Broadford

DirtyRottenScoundrels Poster

The Broadford Amateur Theatrical Society (BATS) is staging a production of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels in June. Based on the popular 1988 MGM film of the same name, starring Steve Martin and Michael Caine, the show takes us to the French Riviera where two competing con men, a beautiful woman and the elite of the French Riviera collide in this sexy and irreverent farce.

At first, the suave and experienced Lawrence Jameson takes the rookie con man, Freddy, under his wing. But soon Freddy is successful enough that he tries to compete directly with Lawrence. The competition comes to a peak when they agree that the first con man to extract $50,000 from the female heiress, Christine Colgate, wins and the other must leave town forever.

Sophisticated, suave with a good dash of mischief, this hysterical comedy features a delightfully jazzy score by David Yazbek (The Full Monty) with the book by Jeffrey Lane and was nominated for a staggering eleven Tony Awards.

For more information and to book your tickets visit The show runs from Friday 9 June to Saturday 24 June.
