24h Play Festival Taichung

Postby JoHo » 17 Nov 2010, 23:16

It’s time for another 24h Play Festival!

We’re looking for writers, actors, directors and stage crew volunteers. All are welcome to join; virgins and veterans of the stage alike! This is a unique opportunity to get involved in a fun community event and meet lots of interesting people. 4-6 short plays (10-12 min each) will be written, rehearsed and performed within 24 hours. It’s intense, crazy and loads of fun. This is your time to shine!

Meet and greet: Friday night - January 14th, 2011 (20:00 – 22:00)
*If time doesn’t fit your schedule – let us know!*

Performance date: Saturday - January 15th, 2011
Rehearsals start at 11:00. Curtain up at 20:00

Venue: Open Theater – 107 Taichung Harbor Rd, Sec 3, B1, Taichung
台中市西屯區台中港路三段107號B1

The 24h Play Festival in 2009 was a great success and we are eager to create another night to remember. Come out and play!

Here’s a rough rundown of the schedule:

All participants gather on Friday night (Jan 14th). The writers are given random qualifiers that serve as inspiration and must be integral to their plays. For example: a setting/time period, a quirky character, and a random prop/costume. A play could be about a spaghetti emergency in the White house or Facebook in the middle ages. Once they know what their play will be about they brainstorm with their assigned actors and directors. Afterwards we all go home for a good night’s rest and beauty sleep! (Writers go all night on inspiration and lots of caffeine!)

The writers hand in their scripts at 10 am on Saturday (April 18th). At 11 am, everyone will get their scripts and start rehearsing. Each play will have a director that will guide, support, assist and bust their butts, with love and care, to memorize their lines, remember all their cues, blocking, etc. before the curtain goes up at 8 o’clock sharp that same night!!

We’re going for light comedies with a touch of melodrama and absurdity.
No dark, abstract dramas thank you!

If you would like to take part in this extreme kind of silliness or are just plain curious and would like to know more please contact Josh Myers at tai1josh@yahoo.com or Cathy Wilson at chameleon2005@gmail.com
