24 HOUR PLAY FEST

FEBRUARY 25TH

Create, Compete, Collapse. Play Fest brings 70+ volunteers together for an unforgettable 24 hour race to put on a show. On Friday, February 24th all these volunteers will arrive at the Wood Theater with no idea what will happen in the next day. Those brave souls will be randomly formed into eight to nine teams, each with 1 writer, 1 director and 3-4 actors. Then a theme for the Fest will be announced and teams will meet for 1 hour before writers go home to write their ten-minute plays (to the year’s theme). Writers must email scripts by 5 AM on Saturday morning. Teams assemble at the theater on Saturday morning and have until the curtain opens at 8 PM to rehearse, memorize and stage 9 ten-minute plays. Audience members then vote for their favorites in a number of categories and winners are awarded!

CALENDAR GIRLS

MAY 4th-7th

When Annie’s husband John dies of leukemia, she and best friend Chris resolve to raise money for a new settee in the local hospital waiting room. They manage to persuade four fellow Women’s Institute members to pose nude with them for an “alternative” calendar. The news of the women’s charitable venture spreads like wildfire, and hordes of press soon descend on the small village of Knapeley in the Yorkshire Dales. The calendar is a success, but Chris and Annie’s friendship is put to the test under the strain of their newfound fame.

Based on the true story of eleven WI members who posed nude for a calendar to raise money for the Leukaemia Research Fund, Calendar Girls opened at the Chichester Festival Theatre and has since become the fastest-selling play in British theatre history.
