Crash Test Drama

Additional acting opportunities at the Arts Theatre Cronulla.

Crash Test Drama is a great way to try out and develop 10 minute plays. It also provides opportunities for actors and directors to practice their craft, while the writers learn more about the art of writing for the stage.

If you or someone you know would like to write a short (10 minute) script and see it performed on stage, contact Graham Yates for details on how we can make it happen.

Anyone who would like to try their hand at directing a short piece is also encouraged.

Anyone (experienced or newcomer) who wants to try acting can turn up on the day at 2pm for the chance to be cast in one of the short plays. There is some rehearsal time, for about 90 minutes, then the pieces are performed while reading from the script - no lines to remember!

All participants must become Theatre members, which can be processed on the day.

Writers and Directors: Contact Graham Yates on 0423 141 949 or via email.

Actors: Just show up on the day at 2pm for casting.

Our next Crash Drama event will be held on

Casting at 2pm. Performances begin at 4pm.

All participants must become members, which can be processed on the day.

Membership is $25.

There is a $5 entrance fee.

No booking required, tickets at the door.

Crash Test Drama Results
On Sunday (23rd May) our second event of the year had a wonderful turnout of actors

with everyone getting cast in a role in one of our six, highly varied, original short plays.
Our judge for the day was Susan Geldart, who chose the prize-winners as follows:
Best Play: ‘The Dracula Slash Draculette’  written by Meili Bookluck
Best Actor: David Delaney
Best Actress: Ann Sayegh
(Both actors performed in Meili’s play.)
The result of the audience votes were;
1st – ‘The Dracula Slash Draculette’ by Meili Bookluck
2nd – ‘The Box’ by Maz Goldrick
Equal 3rd – ‘Pearl’ by Terry Bourke
Equal 3rd – ‘Running in the Dark’ by Jonathan Solomon
So, ‘The Dracula Slash Draculette’ and ‘The Box’ gain entry to our finals in November.
Our next Crash Test Drama is on Sunday, 15th August and we already have a couple of scripts submitted, so writers who want to be in the mix should send their script
