Call for writers, directors, and actors for the 24 Hour Zoom Fest
At 8 pm on Friday, June 25, writers are given their prompts and number of actors via email.

Prompts will be a few words that you must incorporate, either as phrases or concepts.

They then have 12 hours to write a short script (up to 10 minutes). We will have a Zoom room set up overnight for writer commiseration and support. At 8 am on Saturday, June 26, the directors are given their scripts and actors. They then have 12 hours to rehearse their script. At 8 pm on Saturday, we go live on Zoom.You may sign up as writer, director, or actor. We have 12 slots for writers and directors, and will be assigned on a first-come-first-serve basis.
