WEST COAST DEBUT OF THE ACCLAIMED BROADWAY FUNDRAISER
The creative process of THE 24 HOUR PLAYS in Los Angeles will begin at 10:00 p.m. on the night before the show. Six writers, six directors, twenty-four actors, a musical guest and production team will meet at The Broad Stage at the Santa Monica College of Performing Arts. Each cast member will brain-storm ideas before the writers begin composing the plays, which must be completed by 6:00 a.m. the next morning. With only twelve hours to rehearse, the actors will perform the six new plays, interspersed with musical acts, for the very first and only time before a live audience, on Saturday June 18, 2011.
