'24 Hour Miracle' seeks actors

Posted: Thursday, September 18, 2008

The Juneau-Douglas Little Theatre is looking for actors to participate in the local theater challenge "24 Hour Miracle" on Friday, Sept. 26, and Saturday, Sept. 27.

Former theater president Eric Caldwell started the challenge three years ago to see what kind of short play four teams of local writers, directors, actors, and tech people could each produce given just 24 hours.

At 8 p.m. on Sept. 26 the theme will be announced on Caldwell's '80s radio show on KXLL Excellent Radio. Four writers - Geoff Kirsch, Ishmael Hope of Perseverance Theatre, Amy Taylor of KTOO, and Mark Tinneny - will then have 12 hours to write a 10-15 page script. At 8 a.m. on Sept. 27, the writers will turn the scripts over to directors Mike Levine, Kathleen Turner, Brice Habeger and Caldwell, who will then work with the actors to prepare for a performance that night at the Juneau Arts and Culture Center. Last year's "24 Hour Miracle" played to a packed house at the Canvas Community Art Studio & Gallery.

For more information on acting in the production, contact Kirsch at gkirsch@gci.net.
