MUDLARK'S SECOND ANNUAL
24-HOUR PLAY FESTIVAL
SHAKESPEARE IS DEAD
JUNE 4th, 2017
Performances at at 6pm and 8:30pm
Led by Mudlark's Youth Board and staff, "Shakespeare is Dead" is Mudlark's annual 24 Hour Play Festival; an evening of 10 minute plays written, directed and performed by young actors in just 24 hours!
Our 24 Hour Play Festival gives 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.
It only comes once a year, this show is not to be missed!
The show contains some mature language and themes,
recommended for ages 12 and up.
Schedule for the day
fundraising goal: $3,000.00!
The Youth Board is using the opportunity to produce the 24 Hour Play Festival to also fundraise for a new Diversity Initiative at Mudlark.
Starting this summer, Mudlark Theater is partnering with The Art of Evolution Theatre Company of Evanston (AETC), a nonprofit organization that introduces children of color to meaningful theater experiences. The Diversity Initiative, a new fund, will provide opportunities for AETC actors to participate in Mudlark programming from summer camps to a collaborative production with AETC that will premiere in the fall of 2017.
The artistic potential of a theater organization that is a true cross-section of Evanston kids is boundless.
Help us inspire young actors today—and develop hundreds more in years to come—and sponsor one of our incredible high school artists >>
