• The set-up: There are 10 teams, each with one playwright, one director and three or four actors. Each team is randomly assigned and the members meet each other for the first time on February 15.
• The challenge: The teams must produce one 10 minute play in 24 hours and have it ready for the performance on February 16.
• The catch: They must work within a secret theme announced on February 15. The playwrights have until 5:00 a.m. on February 16 to complete the play and then the directors and the actors have until showtime to put it all together!
• The rewards: This is a competition! The best play and best actor and actress, along with runners up receive prizes. Each audience member gets one vote and additional votes can be purchased for $1.00. Winners are announced after the show.
So how can you get involved?
ACTORS – We need at least 30, soooo…. Sign up! It’s a 24 hour commitment the weekend after Valentine’s Day. It’s super fun, short and something different.
DIRECTORS – We need 10 directors, one for each show. If you have some experience directing and are willing to lend your skills, let us know.
WRITERS – We need 10 writers. All writers are juried, so please submit a short sample of your work (play, short story, etc.) by January 1, 2013. You should feel comfortable writing under pressure since you will only have about 7 hours, from 9:00 p.m. Friday night until 5:00 a.m. Saturday morning to write a 10-page play. We’ll give you a little help by providing a theme and list of available set pieces and props to inspire you.
If you aren’t selected to write, let us know if you’d like to be involved in another way. We’ll need volunteers to help things run smoothly and could always use more actors.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up and submit work samples (if you’d like to write).
