24 Hour Play Festival

September 7, 2024 at 7:30 pm

Join us for our third annual 24 Hour Play Festival!

On Friday, September 6 at 7:30 p.m., directors, writers and actors will gather at the theater and the theme will be announced. The writers and directors will have a few minutes to come up with an idea for a 10-minute play. Each writer will create an original 10-minute play and submit a script by 7:30 a.m. on Saturday, September 7. The directors and actors will study the script and rehearse the 10-minute plays throughout the day.

We will then debut the series of 10-minutes plays that evening at 7:30 p.m. for a one-night-only Festival. Join us to see the amazing results of 24 hours of pure theater!
