PlayCreation Festival

Starting  6 p.m. Thursday September 28, 2017,

Performance: 7 p.m. Saturday, September 30, 2017

Teams plan, write, develop, rehearse, and present a new, original play.


  1. On Thursday night at 6:00 PM groups meet at RPAC to see the stage and receive their Creation Crate with items that MUST be included in the play.  Creation Crates will contain a costume, a quote, a prop, a sound effect, and a musical instrument.
  2. The groups will also see the set design.  All plays must begin and end with the prop pieces in the first position.
  3. Beginning at 3pm on Saturday each group has half an hour to set tech elements: set spikes for props and cues with the tech. Times will be drawn randomly.
  4. Each play must be between 13 and 17 minutes in length.  The theatre lights will blink at 15 minutes, lights come up at 17 and any play running over time will be brought to an abrupt halt.
  5. Teams have three minutes post show to remove any items they’ve brought on stage.

Teams preregister at Okotoks Culture & Heritage by calling 403.938.3204.

A maximum of six teams will be registered.
