24 Hour Theater is an exciting collaborative creative event. Within 24 hours, we will write and produce a 60 – 90 minute performance from scratch. The production will consist of a series of short plays. Length and number of plays will be determined by how many people participate.
This event is for anyone interested in participating in theater creation.
No experience is necessary.
In fact, this offers the perfect opportunity for people to try something new.
Never acted before? Learn 10 lines in a short play!
Never written anything before? How about writing a short play in a time limit, surrounded by a group of creative folks around to support and inspire you!
Never directed anything before? Practice with a short 10-minute play!
This is a collaborative event. We need writers, actors and directors. Anyone can do any of these things, you can even do multiple things if you want. Want to write and direct? Great! Want to act and write? Awesome? Want to try all three? Go for it!
Here’s the schedule:
Friday October 6th 7:00 p.m. Everyone gets together at the theater. We randomly assign writers with 2 – 5 actors and a director. Ice-breaking activities will kickstart the creative process, after which the writers work on crafting short plays. They have until 7:00 a.m.
Saturday October 7th from 7:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. we’ll be doing all the rest of the things that need to happen for a play to be produced. Rehearsing and memorizing lines, finding props and costumes, and managing technical aspects like lighting and sound cues.
Saturday 7:00 p.m. we present what we’ve created.
The crowd loves us and we’ve all grown as artists. Cheers!
