24Hour Berkshires/Capital Region Theatre Project 2012
WAM Theatre and MOPCO present the 2012 24 Hour Berkshires/Capital Region Theatre Project! We had such an amazing time with the first sold out 24hr project in 2011 that we are doing it again, this time in the Berkshires!
The second 24hr Berkshires/Capital Region Theatre Project brings together playwrights, directors, designers, stage managers, technicians and actors from both the Berkshires and the Capital Region armed with the common task of mounting 5 new short works by women playwrights, all written rehearsed and performed in 24 Hours.
"Last year's inaugural 24hr project took place at the Arts Center for the Capital Region in Troy, NY and sold out! It was such a success that we all decided to do it again this year in the Berkshires" says Kat Koppett, Training Director at MoPCp "We are delighted that Shakespeare and Company are supporting the event by hosting it in their Bernstein Theatre complex, the perfect place for such an event to take place" adds Kristen van Ginhoven, Artistic Director of WAM Theatre.
