MIRTHFUL PRODUCTIONS PRESENT -
'THE 24 HOUR MUSICAL PROJECT'
The pure and simple idea is: we announce a show and the curtain goes up 24 hours later.
- Audition the show without anyone knowing what it is
- Cast the show without anyone knowing which roles they’re in
- 10 days out, announce a shortlist of 10 show titles, then…
- Each day cross a show off the shortlist, until…
- We announce the show, release the casting and go straight into rehearsal for the next 24 hours straight
- Curtain up and away we go!
The rehearsals are an adrenaline-fueled mad-dash to the curtain. The performance is a unique experience; unpredictable and exhilarating for both the company and the audience.
The 24 Hour Musical Project is a community fundraising venture.
The Project aims to connect people from different companies with different skills and experiences, and help to build our community by working on an ambitious and creative challenge together.
The short time-span is the big advantage of the Project. Not only does it provide a unique challenge for the participants, but it means that people can do a show together without having to block out months of rehearsal time, and can even squeeze it in between or during other commitments. It provides an opportunity for creative people to network, exchange ideas and work positively together.
Our community building goals extend to our audience too, with only one performance (and one not to be missed!) the theatre fills with familiar faces and potential new friends from throughout the local theatre community.
Profits from the Project are donated to local charities. Previous charity partners have included The Actors' and Entertainers' Benevolent Fund of Qld, YES Arusha, CanTeen, The Orangutan Project and The Salvation Army.
