24-Hour Theatre Festival
It's that time again - The 24-Hour Theatre Festival is taking place at Pepper Theater 29 to 30 September.
At Entity's 24-Hour Theatre Festival, participants have exactly one day to create an original play, from scratch, based on a subject assigned at random. 24 hours in total to write, to direct, and to rehearse the pieces - to choose music, sort out costumes and make-up, and to design the lighting.
The Festival begins on Friday - you split into groups, find out the theme, pick a random title and get a list of rules. And, you are assigned a 1-hour rehearsal slot in the theatre. During this 1-hour slot, help is on hand to assist with lighting and sound. The rest of the time is spent rehearsing outside of the theatre.
On Saturday, 24 hours after the start of the festival, it is time for the performances - your group returns to perform an original 5- to 15-minute skit based on your title - in front of a live audience.
A panel of judges appraises the plays. Meanwhile, behind the curtain, the next group is already setting the stage for their play.
Prizes for the Best Production and Audience Award!
We'd love to see you there - participating or watching. You don’t need any experience - come alone or with friends. If you want to participate, you don't need to RSVP - just turn up - doors open 30 minutes before the start times and close at the start times.
Come and join us for 24 hours of fun and madness!
