The 24 Hour Theatre Project is an evening of theater created in 24 hours from creation to production. The project is the finale of the Festival bringing at least 40 local artists together to create this unique evening of theatre. There is no time to second guess, to stumble or to question what you are doing be it writing, directing or acting.
The project starts with 5-6 playwrights and directors and 18-22 actors. Every actor arrives in a costume and with a prop of choice. Some choose to go outlandish and some dress plainly.
The fun is that the plays have zero time for rewrites. It’s up to the director and actors to “make it work” and somehow it always does. The 24 hour theatre project has become a favorite at the New Works Festival. It’s an eclectic evening that promises nothing other than showcasing the collaborative spirit of theatre using the fuel of an impossible time crunch.
