MUDLARK'S FIRST ANNUAL
24-HOUR PLAY FESTIVAL
JUNE 4TH-JUNE 5TH, 2016
Final Performance Sunday, June 5th at 7pm
Led by Mudlark's Youth Board and staff, "Shakespeare is Dead" is Mudlark's first 24 Hour Play Festival; an evening of 10 minute plays written, directed and performed by young actors in just 24 hours!
All proceeds go to Mudlark's Milk Jug Fund, which ensures that no child is turned away from a Mudlark program due to financial circumstances.
A 24 Hour Play Festival is a challenge. Create a 10 minute play, from scratch, in a 24 hour period. That means all of the writing, rehearsing and technical elements happen within 1 Day.
What is a 24-hour play festival?
This year marks the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death. Hundreds of celebrations, performances and events are being planned around the world to commemorate his life and works. Our 24 Hour Play Festival will give a nod to the great playwright by choosing an iconic prop, line or costume piece from one of his plays as the inspiration for our playwrights who must integrate that prop, line or costume piece into the final performance.
Why is it called "Shakespeare is Dead?"
