24 Hour Theatre Project

The Naked Stage is proud to present The Naked Stage’s 24 Theatre Project 2014 at Palm Beach Dramaworks on Monday, October 27th at 8 p.m. You are not going to want to miss, what is sure to be the theatre event of the year.

How does it work? At 7 p.m., on Sunday, October 26th, 2014, eight playwrights will gather at Palm Beach Dramaworks and randomly select the headshots of four actors and one director. They are then given a list of ridiculous play titles, 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, October 27th, their actors, directors and stage managers arrive and spend the entire day bringing the writers’ work to life — a process that usually takes weeks! That night, at 8 p.m., an audience will gather to see . . . well, we have no idea what they’re going to see, actually!  It’s like the entire creative theatrical process on SPEED!  

This one-night event is coordinated by Naked Stage Artistic Director Katherine Amadeo and features many of South Florida’s TOP actors, directors & playwrights, such as:Alex Alvarez, Antonio Amadeo, Andie Arthur, Tracey Barrow-Schoenblatt, Meredith Bartmon, Beverly Blanchette, Sally Bondi, Barbara Bradshaw, Clay Cartland, Clive Cholerton, Dave Corey, Chris Crawford, Michaela Cronan, Troy Davidson, Nick Duckart, Tony Finstrom, Niki Fridh, Nanique Gheridian, Christina Groom, William Hayes, Laura Hodos, Joe Kimble, Margaret Ledford, Michael Leeds, Noah Levine, Amy London, Margery Lowe, Michael McKeever, Amy McKenna, Stuart Meltzer, Margot Moreland, Ann Marie Olson, Rick Pena, Kevin Reilley, Andy Rogow, Adam Simpson, Barbara Sloan, Lourelene Snedeker, Matt Stabile, Karen Stephens, Kim St. Leon, Nicole Stodard, Shane Tanner, Pierre Tannous, Skye Whitcomb and more!   (Names subject to change at any time)
