Audiences flocked to see Shepparton Theatre Arts Group’s season of 10 in Ten plays at the weekend.
More than 350 theatre fans saw four performances of the shows at Wesley Hall in Maude St, Shepparton on Friday and Saturday, and at Dookie Memorial Hall on Sunday afternoon.
The plays were presented as part of this year’s SheppARTon Festival.
Group president Fiona Kennan said the 10-minute plays were written, acted and directed by amateur enthusiasts.
She said they presented a chance for people to ‘‘dip their toes’’ into the world of theatre.
‘‘We all had incredibly good fun, and the audience support was just fantastic,’’ Ms Kennan said.
The short plays covered a wide variety of topics from interfering ghosts to the pitfalls of the beauty industry and raunchy dreams about passionate plumbers.
‘‘There were some serious moments, a lot of laughs and some head-scratching moments,’’ Ms Kennan said.
She said cast members came from across the Shepparton demographic.
‘‘We had high school students, professional people, tradies, mums and dads and pensioners,’’ she said.
She said plans would begin for next year’s eighth season of 10 in Ten plays.
