24 Hour Play Festival

Aug 20th @7PM

Join in the fun Aug. 20th on the Main Stage when a group of directors playwrights and actors get together and challenge themselves to write, cast, and produce a group of 10-12 minute plays in a 24 hour period.  On Friday night at 9pm the auditions are held and actors are cast for roles The actors, directors and playwrights meet and then the actors and directors go home and the writers write all night.  The next day is hectic and frantic and filled with laughter and cooperation among talented and creative people as they work to rehearse, block, costume and prop their play.  About 5pm on Saturday evening there is a tech rehearsal on stage for each show then the house opens at 7pm to the public.  It is exhausting, fun, crazy, rewarding and challenging and the audience is amazed at what can be done in such a short time!
