"24" / "12"

Spotlight Studios announces two exciting October Break events!

An entire evening of original one act plays written, rehearsed, and performed in 24 hours by 8-12th graders!

An entire evening of original one act plays rehearsed and performed in 12 hours by 4-8th graders!

These are theatre events unlike any other. They are tiring, they are stressful, but they are always fun!

"24"

In "24", artists in 8-12th grade gather together one evening. By the same time the next evening, several teen authors will have written brand new original plays. Several teen directors will take these plays and cast from a pool of teen performers. Then they rehearse, rehearse, rehearse until show time!

"24" starts at 6pm on Saturday October 7. The authors get to work while the performers and directors first watch the final performance of "The Secret Life of Girls" in production at Spotlight, then hopefully find some rest before morning. At 6am the authors have to hand in whatever they have and the directors wake up, read through the scripts and cast their shows. At 7am the performers wake up. They have until 6pm Sunday October 8 to learn their show, learn their lines, and be ready to perform!

"24" runs Saturday October 7 at 6pm until Sunday October 8 at 6pm when the performances begin (friends and family are welcome) The cost to participate is $100. Sleeping bags, a change of clothes, snacks and food are highly recommended. Breakfast will be provided.
Participants must be in 8-12th grade. At this point we are only looking for actors. The director and author slots have been filled.
Participants are expected to stay at Spotlight the entire time.

"12"

In "12", performers in 4-8th grade gather in the morning. By the evening, they will be performing original one act plays never before seen anywhere!

"12" starts at 7am on Monday October 9 (a day off from school). Several teen directors gather at Spotlight to read through several brand new original one-act plays. Performers show up at 8am to be cast into a show and start rehearsing. They have until 7pm Monday October 9 to learn their lines and be ready to perform!

"12" runs Monday October 9 at 8am until Monday October 9 at 7pm when the performances begin (friends and family are welcome) The cost to participate is $60.
