Blog: USAO Drama plans play in 24-hours

The Express-Star

CHICKASHA — The Drama Club is hosting a 24-hour show this Sunday. This style of production is really fun and creative. It literally gives the crew 24-hours to cast, rehearse and present. All the volunteers will gather tonight at 7 p.m. and will distribute assignments. I talked with Drama Club president Daniella Jimenez about the off-the-wall format.

"It has gone well in the past. Two summers ago the Drama Club presented a 24-hour production of Wyile and the Hairy Man which brought in a fair crowd. All of the students that had participated had a blast and everyone that watched the production seemed to enjoy it. This year we plan on initiating more participation from the student body as well as faculty and staff. The performance is by donation in hopes of fundraising for new technical equipment in the theater."

Daniella explained that the time crunch initiates innovation and prompts creativity.

"Every decision has to be swift, effective and informed. Problems arise whenever people get cranky and haven't had any sleep."

To be apart of the play, grab a friend and visit USAO's campus building Davis Hall, room 107 at 7 p.m. tonight.

The show itself is attendance by donation and will start at 7 p.m. this Sunday in the Davis Little Theatre.
