A smorgasbord of entertainment.
Comedy with serious depth and drama with a light touch.
A unique theatre experience.
Back in the good old days when Mr. Shakespeare wrote, produced and directed his first play – he literally held the audience captive for an entire afternoon.
Over the years, wishing to comply with social convention, the running time of your average play slowly dwindled down to three acts with intervals, then to 90 minutes with no interval. In more recent times a new phenomenon has entered stage left – the 10 minute play format. Distinct from a sketch, or a skit – the ten-minute play is a compact and complete story with a beginning, middle and an end.
The Bendigo Theatre Company’s TENx10 season is not a competition - but it is a great way to give people a chance to stick their big toe in the ocean that is amateur theatre. Since its inception in 2016, BTC has unearthed some creatively clever original scripts and has given people a chance to not only hone their skills - but to try something new in a safe, non-judgemental environment.
Every year the call goes out for writers, directors, cast and backstage crew and each year the interest has grown. With no barrier to age, gender or experience – TENx10 offers participants the ability to experience the many aspects of theatre within a smaller time commitment - and it’s a great way to meet a whole group of folks who are enjoying being involved in the theatre experience.
