Abrams holding 24 Hour Theater event

Individuals age 14 and older can now register for 24 Hour Theater, a new creative event sponsored by Abrams Spotlight Productions Inc.

24 Hour Theater is a new venture for ASPI, and the collaborative event will take place Oct. 6-7 at the Nancy Byng Community Theater, 5852 Maple St., Abrams.

Within 24 hours, participants will write and produce a 60- to 90-minute performance from scratch. The production will consist of a series of short plays. The length and number of plays will be determined by how many people participate. There’s no cost to participate, and no experience is necessary. In fact, 24 Hour Theater offers the perfect opportunity for people to try something new.

24 Hour Theater begins at 7 p.m. Oct. 6, when all participants gather at the Nancy Byng Community Theater. The creative process begins with ice-breaking activities before organizers randomly assign writers to work with two to five actors and a director. The writers draft short plays until 7 a.m. Oct. 7.

From 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. that day, participants will memorize lines, find props, choose costumes, rehearse and manage technical aspects, like lighting and sound cues. At 7 p.m. Oct. 7, participants will present what they’ve created. Admission to the event is $5.

Registration is recommended, with sign-up available at www.abramstheater.com.
