The 24 Hour Theatre Project is an evening of theater created in 24 hours from concept to production. There is no time to question, stumble or second guess. It takes four playwrights, four directors, and four actors. Every actor arrives in a costume and with a prop of choice, and the playwright takes it from there. The fun is that the plays have zero time for rewrites. It’s up to the director and actors to “make it work,” and somehow they always do!


Auditions have concluded for The 2024 Festival of New American Theatre's 24-Hour Theatre Project.
