WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

An evening with South Florida's top theatre talent! Gable Stage presents the first annual 24-Hour Theatre Project Fundraiser. With guest theatre companies: Ground Up & Rising * Mad Cat Theatre Company * The Promethean Theatre and featuring the talents of Carbonell Award Winners: Joseph Adler, Antonio Amadeo, Ken Clement, Kameshia Duncan, Todd Allen Durkin, Meredith Lasher, Michael McKeever, Deborah Mello, Lisa Morgan and Paul Tei as well as Carbonell Award Nominees: Lela Elam, Erik Fabregat, David Perez-Ribada, Juan C. Sanchez and Stacy Schwartz and more! How does it work? At 7 PM on Sunday, November 18th, 2007, 6 playwrights will gather and select a theme from which they must each write a short play to be staged, rehearsed and performed the next day -- just 24 hours later! At sunrise on Monday, November 19th, their randomly distributed directors and actors arrive (armed only with copious amounts of caffeinated beverages), and spend the entire day bringing the writers' work to life. A process that usually takes weeks! That night, at 8:00 PM (Okay, so technically that's 25 hours after the start. What do you want from them?!), an audience will gather to see... Well, no one has an idea what they're going to see, actually! It's like the entire creative theatrical process on SPEED! There will be a small reception/meet & greet with the directors, writers, and actors immediately following the performance. All profits will be divided evenly between The Naked Stage, Ground Up & Rising, Mad Cat Theatre Company & The Promethean Theatre.
