Mayfly Playhouse 24-Hour Theater

The Mayfly Playhouse, Southeastern Connecticut’s only 24-hour theater production, is calling all actors. This presentation is part of the Hygienic Art annual Salon Des Independents arts festival, now entering its 34th year!

Mayfly Playhouse is now preparing for its fifth season. Seven world-premier short plays will be presented on Saturday February 2, 2013 at 8pm in New London CT. Actors will have one day to rehearse their lines, learn their blocking, and get off book in time for the show.

Actors will need to be in New London Friday February 1st, from 8pm to 9pm, as they are assigned by random drawing to seven playwrights and seven directors. At 8am Saturday, Feb 2, you will receive your scripts and be sent to a private rehearsal space in town. You will have until 5pm to work on your plays, and then proceed to the performance space where a tech rehearsal will take place from 5:30-7:30pm. At 8pm, the show goes up, ready or not.

If you’re interested, and have those dates and times available, please visit to find the link to the registration page. The first 25 actors to register will be accepted, all others after that going onto the Standy-By list in case someone drops out.

The same registration page also holds information about the performance times and location for anyone interested in attending.

Good luck!
