Event

The Twenty Four Hour Theater Project
Let the countdown begin to the 24 Hour Theater Project, a dramatic race against time to bring five short plays to life. The Center for the Arts is proud to continue its role as host for this beloved and highly anticipated event founded in 2002 by playwright Tanyss Rhea Martula.

While the premise is simple, the execution is anything but: within 24 hours, five ten-minute plays will be written, rehearsed, directed, produced, and staged. The culmination of this day-long burst of creativity are two public performances, often standing-room-only, showcasing local writers, actors, and directors.

The time-limited and adrenaline-filled process begins on Friday evening, when five playwrights meet to draw cards with unnamed actors descriptions out of a hat. Once they have their cast information, the playwrights have 12 hours to create a ten-minute play. In the morning, they hand off their scripts to five directors who then read the script for the first time, gather their actors, and spend the next 10 hours rehearsing, while others father props, costumes, and set pieces.
