Nanango Theatre Company’s planned 12-play festival – which was to kick off at the Nanango Cultural Centre on Friday night – has been cancelled due to the extension of the COVID-19 lockdown in Greater Brisbane.
The company had planned to stage three one-act plays on Friday night, three on Saturday afternoon, four on Saturday night and two on Sunday morning as part of the inaugural Heritage NananGO PLAYfest.
The three days of plays were the first time that Nanango Theatre Company had staged a theatre competition like this, and would have been part of the wider South East Queensland Drama Festival circuit.
Prizes, sponsored by Heritage Nanango, were offer for the Best Play, Best Director and Best Actors.
Several of the planned performances involved theatre groups from Brisbane and Ipswich which are currently in lockdown.
Nanango Theatre Company spokesperson Anne Davoren said the group would now try to set a new date for the festival.
