24 Hour Plays


24 Hour Plays

Produced by Austin M. Rausch and Mark Ridgeway 
Williams Theatre 
Saturday, Dec. 3     8:00 p.m. 

24 Hour Plays is a wild night of original theatre featuring short plays written, rehearsed, and performed by students over the course of 24 hours. On Friday night, each playwright (upperclassman) will be assigned a director (also an upperclassman) and a group of actors (underclassmen) who will each bring a prop and costume piece to the first meeting. Writing all night, while keeping the actors, props, and costumes in mind, the playwright will meet with their director at 7 a.m. to discuss the newly written play. One hour later the actors begin rehearsals and have all day Saturday to fully memorize, stage, and perform their play for an audience.

Patrons are encouraged to call in advance to reserve their tickets. Please arrive early. Latecomers will be seated at the discretion of management or at intermission.
