Deadline looming for 10-Minute Play Contest

If you are planning to enter the Ryga Festival’s 10-Minute Play contest, you’ve only got a few days to get your entry in.

High school students and adults are encouraged to try this art form, with the contest split into two categories, over 18 and under 18.

But you’ve only got until May 31 to enter your original play of 10 minutes or less, either by email at rygafest@gmail.com or by Canada Post.

Winning plays will be performed during the Ryga Festival in Summerland on September 3rd.

Contestants can download rules and guidelines from the Ryga Festival website at www.rygafest.ca. The contest is open to all residents within the Okanagan Regional Library service area, from Golden to Princeton. There is no entry fee.
