Lilac Players' 48-Hour Virtual Play Festival, 2021


Friday 11/12/21 through Sunday, 11/14/21

Our second-annual 48 Hour Virtual Play Festival is fast approaching, and we're seeking Writers, Directors, and Actors to join the fun!

Registration is open through November 5 for individuals and teams! Details can be found in the registration form or below.

The resulting plays will stream live on the Lilac Players YouTube channel on November 14, 7:30pm ET .

Details for Participants

Each team will consist of a Writer, Director, and 2 to 4 Actors. Teams will be assigned at the kickoff meeting (excepting team-registrations), along with this year's theme(s). Plays are expected to run 5 to 10 minutes.

Participants are expected at the kickoff meeting, tech rehearsals, walk-thru, and performance, but teams will schedule their own rehearsals within the 48-hour time period. A running Zoom with team breakout rooms will be available Saturday-Sunday for rehearsals and questions.
