24 Hour Play Festival
6th Annual 24 Hour Play Festival and Silent Auction!
"Write. Act. Watch."
Our wildly popular 24 Hour Play Festival and Silent Auction is back on January 25th! All plays will be written, rehearsed, and performed in a 24 hour period.
Here's how it works:
Six writers and six directors are chosen from a sign up list. They meet the (Friday) evening before the event, and the writers draw 2 genres and a famous movie line to incorporate into their play. They then draw the director who is to direct their play and the directors draw the actors for each play. Writers have from 7pm Friday evening until 7am Saturday morning to write an original 10-15 minute play. At 8am, scripts are distributed and each cast rehearses with their director for the next 8-10 hours, followed by a performance in front of an audience Saturday evening.
There will be a silent auction and social hour starting at 6pm. We have some AMAZING silent auction items that have been graciously donated by some of Cedar Rapids' finest businesses, and we will be asking you to bid on these items before the performances start and through the first half of the performances.
The silent auction begins at 6:00 pm and the festival starts at 7:00 pm
