Seeking Actors and Directors
– Submissions for Writers CLOSED

HOW DOES IT WORK?
24 HOUR THEATRE is a fast and furious project, where teams of actors, writers and directors will create and produce completely original short plays all in 24 hours. In the afternoon of Saturday 12th April 2014  actors will be grouped into their acting ensembles and assigned a writer (or writing team) and a director. Each writer will draw a topic or ‘red-herring’  out of a hat, of which they will need to include in the play that they will write THAT NIGHT. There will also be a communal topic drawn that all plays must incorporate into the plays. Writers will have an opportunity to brainstorm their ideas with their director and actors on the evening.

At 9:00am the next morning, the writer will hand the original script to their director and actors who will learn their lines, stage their play and perform it that night. This is an exciting challenge and stacks of fun!

WHO CAN APPLY? HOW DO I GET INVOLVED?
Expressions of interest can be emailed to Producer Luke Berman (Black Box Theatre) at luke@blackboxtheatre.org – please include whether you would like to act, write or direct, and tell us a little about yourself and your theatre experience, feel free to include your CV and headshot if you have one. This project is open to everyone!

You can apply to participate as an individual, or you can put together your own group of actors/writers/directors. Applications from Independent Theatre Companies are welcome.

Tickets for audience will be $15 each, there are no admission fees for participants.
