UNIQUE PROJECT MIXING THEATRE VETERANS & ROOKIES

What makes the 24 Hr Project special, aside from its format, is the inclusion of theatre veterans with those who have never performed before. A "crash course" if you will for newcomers who have been given the opportunity to get on stage for what may be the first time in their life. It consistently provides great results and a thrill for those on and off stage.

Many audience members at the Gordon Best Theatre can't believe what they are seeing wasn't even on paper the night before.
