Beginning of Spring, End of Festivals
Well the festival circuit is over for another year. Melanostia abounding…but not quite yet. Give us a week.
"For The Love of Kyle" performed at Sandgate's Yarrageh Drama Festival on Saturday night and on Sunday were back in the game with 2 awards.
Kate Beck won Best Actress In a Drama, and an Adjudicators Award for writing "For The Love of Kyle".
Congratulations to the cast and crew for the final festival performance of the year. It has been a long, enjoyable journey and we hope melanostia doesn't hit too hard.
There are still 2 more shows to go however, so all is not lost! 4Play, a production by the newly formed "Natural Born Quillers" will be premiering on Friday 12th and Saturday 13th October. See the Current Shows page for more details. This will be two nights of quality entertainment by talented and award winning local playwrights, fresh off the circuit. Join us to celebrate the last performances of "Kyle" and to support local talent.
And thankyou for a successful and amazing festival run. It was perfect.
"For The Love of Kyle" has had a busy week squeezing in 3 festivals: Brisbane Arts Theatre Drama Festival, Sunshine Coast Theatre Festival and KSP Drama Festival.
Unfortunately they have not managed to pick up any awards at either festival, however have had some positive feedback, and most importantly, enjoyed the amazing festivals!
There is just one festival left before they take a 6 week break and regroup for "4Play" (more information to come), so make sure you get along to Sandgate this Saturday night for the Yarrageh Drama Festival. Details can be found on the Current Shows page.
In a moment that stunned the cast and crew of "For The Love of Kyle", they were announced winners of "Best Production of an Australian Script" at the Ipswich Little Theatre One Act Play Festival! After having won this award now three times in a row, they are, as you can imagine, stoked, to say the least.
They were also presented with the Stage Managers Award, for being the most "professional ensemble backstage" which was a real credit and a lovely award to receive.
A big congrats also to TJ, who was the Runner-Up for Best Supporting Actor.
It was a lovely festival and again, very well organised, warm and social.
Congratulations to "For The Love of Kyle" - you're on a "role"!

Congratulations to all involved, it was another successful festival.

"For The Love of Kyle" hit Dalby big time over the weekend of 14th and 15th July.
The festival was brilliant, the locals warm, the groups supportive, the atmosphere special and temperature not even that cold! The cast and crew felt amazing after their performance, it was leaping smiles all round.
As if that wasn’t good enough, "For The Love of Kyle" was awarded Best Australian Play, and Tim took out Best Supporting Male Actor! Our little dynamo swept away actors three times his age. An extremely successful tour, and a weekend of dreams for us all.
