What is the 24 Experiment? The 24 Experiment is an extreme theater production project which involves talented people with nerve and lots of caffeinated coffee! The 24 Experiment has been performed in theatres across the country. It is a series of short original plays written and produced by teams of risk-taking writers, creative directors, and dedicated actors in a single day. The finished plays are performed in front of a live audience. Audience-nominated awards are given for the best plays.
Who May Join? The 24 EXPERIMENT is open to all actors, writers and directors, experienced or not, who want to taste a fast paced, intense and rewarding artistic and social event. Participation is limited to the first 24 actors, 24 writers, and 12 directors who register. Participants can only register in ONE category. There is a $10 registration fee for all participants.
