FLASH FESTIVAL 2015


Congratulations to Woy Woy Little Theatre for hosting another highly successful Flash Festival! Everything went off very smoothly and the quality of the plays was of a very high standard. It was a highly entertaining show with a wide variety of styles from hilarious to poignant, and sometimes thought provoking. The festival is a wonderful way to showcase a great range of talent, and it was great to see some new names and faces, b0th performing and behind the scenes. It feels like the festival has hit its stride and I really hope WWLT will keep the momentum going so that we can look forward to more servings of this wonderful theatrical banquet in future years.
