24-Hour Playwriting Project- Five World Premiers Created In A Day
Directors, play writers, performers, and stage crew gathered at 7:00 PM, Friday, November 15 to create, produce and perform an original script with one required guideline; a "fortune cookie fortune" had to be part of the script somehow.
Boxes and giant post-it notes held the preliminary organization of the five world premiers created in a day. By luck of the draw, the sequence of the plays and pick of cast, the director, and the play writer were assigned. Play writers provided a finished play to Mr. Crofton by 6:30 AM. Mr. Crofton made copies for directors to read the play at 7:30 AM. Plays were in rehearsals by 8:00 AM as the group enjoyed the generosity of the Johnson Family who provided doughnuts and Earl's Barbeque for lunch for the enterprising cast and crew.
