Starlit Voice in collaboration with Treasure Chest Theatre brings you 24 Hour Theatre.
Over the course of 24 hours actors, writers and directors will conceptualize, develop and create a 10 minute theatre production. At the end of the 24 hour creative period, the production will be staged in front of a live audience.
How Does it Work?
Six writers will write six scripts. These scripts will then be assigned to six directors will direct a cast of actors in a ten minute performance. Writers, Actors and Directors will convene at 7pm on the 13th at the McAulay Studio. Writers will then randomly select a theme to write about. Casts and directors will also be assigned at random.
Then the fun begins!
Writers, directors and actors will then go off to do their respective things. Time slots will be allotted to each group (at random) during which they will have the full technical support of the theatre space in order to have a full dress run.
At 7pm on the 14th, all preparations will cease and the doors to the theatre will open to the public.
