PLOT POINT: The Ten-Minute Play Project Gets to It!
Friday and Saturday, March 1-2, Broadmeadow Methodist Church
WE ONLY HAVE ONE NIGHT TO WRITE IT...
WE ONLY HAVE ONE DAY TO REHEARSE IT...
AND WE ONLY HAVE ONE CHANCE (OR MAYBE TWO?) TO PERFORM IT!
Fondren Theatre Workshop’s ever-popular 24-Hour/Ten Minute Play Project returns for its 6th incarnation March 1-2. Up to six teams of writers, directors, and actors will gather at Broadmeadow Methodist Church on Friday night, March 1, to get their randomly assigned marching orders, and will then spend just under 24 hours writing and rehearsing brand new shows before presenting them to a live audience at 7:00 p.m. on Saturday night, March 2. This year, there will be a bonus "encore" performance of the top three audience favorites at the monthly Playwright Night at Brent’s on Tuesday, March 5. PLEASE NOTE: you do NOT have to be available for the Tuesday night encore in order to participate in the official weekend event–we will fill in gaps as needed with other actors/readers for Playwright Night.
If you are at least 16 years old and are interested in participating as a Director or an Actor, you MUST PRE-REGISTER NO LATER THAN FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 22, BY COMPLETING THE INFO BELOW AND EMAILING IT TO DIANA HOWELL at email@example.com. The registration fee is $8.00 per person, payable at our initial orientation meeting on Friday, March 1, and includes snacks and lunch on Saturday. Note: writers are exempt from registration fees. You will need to be available from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Friday, March 1 for orientation and team assignments, and then ALL DAY, from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m., on Saturday.
All directing and acting assignments will be made first-come, first-serve. FTW also reserves the right to make adjustments as needed to teams in order to provide the best shows possible for our audiences. The event is open to anyone with an interest in theatre, regardless of prior experience. SO LOOK NO FURTHER–JUST MARCH ON DOWN AND COME PLAY WITH US!
