24 Hours.
28 Artists.
4 Original Musicals & 2 New Plays...   

we hope...

In 2016, Blackfriars Theatre and Writers & Books unleashed a chaotic storm of creative possibilities with The 24 Hour Musical Theatre Festival. A huge hit in its inaugural production, The 24 Hour Musical Theatre Festival saw the creation of four brand new rollicking musicals and two witty and powerful new plays. You won't want to miss what we have in store for 2017! A favorite among artists and audiences world-wide, The 24 Hour Musical Theatre Festival is an exercise in theatrical survival as composers, playwrights, directors, actors, choreographers and musical directors gather to write, direct, rehearse and perform a new short musical or play in 24 hours!

The 2017 Festival has been postponed from its original date, April 8, 2017. More info coming soon.
