24 Hour New Play Festival 2023

Ten Bucks Theatre Company is excited to partner with the University of Maine’s School of Performing Arts to present 

TBT’s 9th Annual 24-Hour New Play Festival!

The event will take place at Minsky Recital Hall, located in the Class of 1944 Hall on the UMaine campus. Participants will meet on the evening of Friday, Sep. 22nd, be put into groups, receive their role assignments (actor, writer or director) and attend workshops. The writers will then take their ideas home to compose a 10-15-minute play, which they will bring back to Minsky on Saturday morning. Then the actors, directors and tech crew will begin the job of bringing those shows to life for the 7 pm performance on Saturday, Sep. 23rd!

Participant Registration is now open! There is a $10 registration fee that must be paid by Check-In on the 22nd.
