Second annual Victoria One Act Play Festival is returning!

Welcome back to the second annual Victoria One Act Play Festival.

In our inaugural year, we had 10 incredible plays which highlighted the work of over 90 artists in the writing, acting, directing and producing of each play. Every production was also sold out with over 360 patrons seeing these first-time local productions. We had nothing but glowing reviews for the productions. Victoria has some truly amazing talent.

We are excited to be back at the Belfry June 5-8 for more unforgettable One Act Plays.
