East Valley 24-Hour Theatre is a celebration of the drive and passion of a theatrical performance, condensed and purified into one insane day.
Laughing Pig Theatre will be accepting applications for all positions -Performer, Director, Writer, and Support Staff- until midnight on January 31. If necessary, we will hold face-to-face auditions to determine our performer slots. We are looking to produce 5 shows with 2-4 person casts, so we are interested in bringing on 5 writers, 5 directors, and anywhere from 10-20 performers. as well as a few support staff to work in short shifts throughout the process to assist with the event.
On Friday, February 28th, their will be a mandatory Orientation Meeting with all the selected participants, where we the 5 writers will randomly draw the performers' names to see who their cast will be. Performers will all bring a costume and-or prop with them as well to inspire the writers.
The writers then have until 6:00 AM the next morning to write a complete 10-minute script that includes all of their assigned performers and their props and costumes. The directors will then come in to read over all the scripts and determine who will direct what. Then they will rehearse with their casts all day, leading up to a performance that same night, February 29th at 7:30 PM!
This event is open to anyone who wants to try something new and challenging. First time theatre artists are welcome to apply. We get an extra day in 2020, so why not spend it doing some of the craziest theatre you will ever see!? Applications due by January 31st!
