GLT Datebook: 10-Minute Play Festival Features New Accessibility At Heartland Theater

Jun 1, 2018

Heartland Theater in Normal presents the 10-Minute Play Festival, debuting not only new, short works of theater, but a new listening system for the hearing-impaired.

  • This year, the 10-Minute Play Festival has magic as its theme.
  • Over 300 plays from across the country were submitted, with a dedicated team of judges narrowing it down to just eight winning plays.
  • The festival runs June 7 through June 30 at One Normal Plaza.
  • That location has now been wired for a new Assistive Listening System, allowing those who are hearing-impared to better experience the performances.  
  • The installation is made possible by a Mirza Arts and Culture Grant from the Illinois Prairie Community Foundation, and from contributions of many patrons.
