Inspiracy Arts - 24 Hour Play-Fest
Inspiracy Arts, Patterson Repertory Theater and The West Side Players will team up to produce a "24 hour Play-Fest" at the West Side Theater. This feat of Theatrical Olympics will include six original short plays written, rehearsed and fully produced within a 24 hour period. The entire creative process from the writing stage to the rehearsals leading up to the live performance at the West Side Theatre
will be filmed into a mini-documentary to be shown prior to the live performances.
Over 45 participants will sign up to be writers, directors, actors, film-makers and stage crew. The night before the show, a theme is picked at random and the writers have 12 hours to write a 10-minute script. In the morning, scripts are randomly assigned to teams made of 1 director and 2-3 actors. A technical team works with the director to create simple lighting and sound effects, gather props and costumes and coordinate makeup/ hair. Meanwhile a film crew is documenting and editing footage of all the behind the scenes action. The teams workshop the scripts all day in preparation for a live performance onstage!
