Want to be part of the theatrical craziness of writing and producing a play in one day?
Hosted by members of the Alpha Psi Omega National Theatre Honor Society, “The 24 Hour Plays” will be staged Saturday, April 27, at 7:30 p.m. in the Center for Performing Arts Center Theatre.
At 7:30 p.m. Friday, April 26, all participating members will gather in the Center for Performing Arts and be divided into groups consisting of a writer, director and actors.
The writers will stay overnight, creating an original play that Saturday morning will be given to their corresponding director and actors, who will have until the scheduled performance time to learn and rehearse the play complete with effects, cues and props.
Alpha Psi Omega serves as a resource for students involved with the Department of Theatre and Film to have a larger voice on campus and provide supplemental access to career building opportunities, such as attending professional conferences and auditions for graduate schools.
Tickets for the shows — $3 for students and $5 for the general public — will be available at the door. Proceeds will benefit Alpha Psi Omega.
