Its that time of year again, time to prepare for 24 Hour Theatre! Some of you may ask, well...what is 24 Hour Theatre? If so, we shall tell you:

24 Hour Theatre is a unique theatrical experience in which writers, directors, actors, and designers conceive and perform a piece in a full 24 hours. At 8pm on Friday January 22nd writers arrive. The write all through the night to prepare a 20 minute script. At 8am on Saturday January 23rd, directors arrive, are assigned a show, and meet with the writers about the concept. At 9am on January 23rd actors arrive. They are cast in the shows, and then rehearse all day, memorizing lines, gathering costumes, blocking, etc. Until finally at 8pm (a full 24 hours from the beginning) the shows are performed.

WRITERS AND DIRECTORS: If you wish to apply to be a writer or director, applications are now available on the Xperimental Theatre call board in the basement of Rarig. These applications are due in the X Box outside of the X office by noon on Friday December 4th.

ACTORS: If you wish to act, there is a sign up sheet on the call board as well.
