Announcing Fast*Fest 2024


Fast*Fest is the biennial short play festival from Minnesota Association of Community Theatres (MACT). It is a festival of 20-minute (max) plays.


Fast*Fest 2024 will be held August 16th (welcome social) and August 17th (workshops, performances, and another social) at the Encore Performing Arts Center in Cloquet. It will be hosted by County Seat Theater Company.

The performances are not adjudicated. Instead there is be
a moderator led discussion after each performance. This is
a great opportunity for playwrights and theatre companies
to try out new material. Many of the plays are original works by local playwrights. The audiences are very receptive and provide valuable feedback to both the playwrights and the performing troop.

Applause will be a participant in the festival. Come see us shine!
