The premise is simple - the cast rehearses the musical over a 24-hour period, and then performs it.
The rehearsals are an adrenaline-fueled mad-dash to the curtain. The performance is a unique experience; unpredictable and exhilarating for both the company and the audience.
It provides an opportunity for creative people to network, exchange ideas and work positively together whilst still creating a high quality production.
24 Hour RENT brings together a cast of professional actors and talented amateurs, a live band, and a hard-working production team. All volunteers, they pull together to produce a professional-standard musical in just 24 hours.
Rehearsals start on Friday afternoon at 3pm. None of the cast have worked together on the show before this time. Then, 24 amazing, exciting, exhausting hours later, it’s showtime!
