University Theatre


8:00pm on October 17th at UBC Okanagan’s University Theatre, come see a play made entirely in under 24 hours!

High school teams will descend on the University Theatre to participate in the 24 Plays Challenge. Guided by UBCO Interdisciplinary Performance faculty, alumni, and students, each team must create a script of 10-15 minutes in length, block, rehearse, and perform it in front of a live audience within the span of 24 hours. The process begins on Friday night. Writers work well into the night at Bumbershoot Theatre then teams rehearse all day Saturday to produce their shows. With YOU, the public, invited to watch at the UBCO University Theatre, the curtain goes up on the culminating masterpieces on Saturday, night.

The event is produced by UBCO Creative Studies Performance Program, Mustangs Theatre Company and Bumbershoot Theatre in association with 24hr Plays Broadway. All profits from this challenge support the Scott Lawler Scholarship for the Arts.
