• 24-Hour Play Festival

What can you do in a day?

You won't have to save the world in a day like Jack Bauer does on the popuar TV show, but budding thespians -- both recent alumni and current students -- will be asked to write, rehearse, and perform a series of 10-minute plays at Suffolk's 24-Hour Play Festival.

Sponsored by the Theatre Department and Alumni Association, the festival is open to anyone with a passion for performance and theatre, and presents an unique opportunity for alumni to reconnect with old friends, former classmates, and faculty.

Alumni applications are due on Tuesday, September 4.

Contact Effie Parpos, Associate Director of the Alumni Association, for an application and more information.

The event is free and open to the public.  Seating is on a first come, first serve basis.  No reservations.
