Play Fest in 5 Steps
70 volunteers with some or no theatrical experience gather Friday night to form 9 randomly selected teams – each with one writer, one director and 3 or 4 actors.
A theme for Play Fest is announced at the Friday night meeting and each team has one hour to meet before dispersing.
Each of the 9 writers work through the night to complete a 10 minute play for their team which must be complete by 5am Saturday morning.
Directors and actors arrive at 7am Saturday morning and rehearse all day.
Saturday night the curtain rises for an 8pm performance of all 9 plays.
Audience votes decide the best play, actor and actress.
And yes, extra votes can be purchased for $1.
AND IT ALL HAPPENS IN 24 HOURS!
