The group was contesting against Reps from Harare and Kadoma's Campbell Theatre at the festival were 7 awards were up for grabs.
Amongst the 6 plays that were staged the Masvingo Theatre and Arts Club performed two, Blood Knot written by Athol Fugard which starred Ponde and Banda and The First and The Last written by John Galsworthy which starred aforementioned two actors and Masekesa.
Both plays were directed by Banda.
Undoubtedly the Charles Austin Theatre's drama club put on some of the best performances of the entire festival.
The first play they performed was The Blood Knot which tells the story of two half-brothers, one black and the other coloured to the extent of being almost white.
Their second and last performance was The First and The Last which tells the story of Larry, a lawyer's young brother, who murders his girlfriend's husband.
The Charles Austin Theatre managed to bag three awards namely The Best Actor and Achievement Award won by Ponde and The Best Director won by Banda.
Next year the Charles Austin Theatre will be hosting the festival. Next week Charles Austin Theatre will be staging the acclaimed play The Graduates by Charles Munganasa at Theatre In The Park on the 15 and 16th of September 2016.
