UT Theatre & Film department holds 24-hour plays

Students will unleash their own brand of creativity when The University of Toledo Department of Theatre & Film hosts the annual 24 Hour Plays, to be presented Saturday, Jan. 30 at 7:30 p.m. in the UT Center for Performing Arts Center Theatre. The event is coordinated by the UT chapter of Alpha Psi Omega, the national theatre fraternity.

For the performers, the mayhem begins the night before on Friday when students are divided into teams whose members collaborate to write, produce and rehearse the play. They have until just before show time on Saturday to pull it together for performance.

For those wishing to participate in the 24 Hour Plays, sign up sheets are available on the Alpha Psi Omega bulletin board in the UT Center for Performing Arts.

Tickets to the 24 Hour Plays are sold in advance or at the door for $10 general admission, and $5 for students, children, seniors, members of the military and all UT faculty and staff. Advance tickets are available through the Center for Performing Arts Box Office by calling 419/530-ARTS (2787) or online at www.utoledo.Tix.com.
