Event description

Description

Creative Works of Lancaster announces a special night of theater. The 24 Hour Plays: Lancaster is set for October 5, 2019 at 7 pm at The Stone Independent School, 480 New Holland Avenue.

This is the ninth year for the The 24 Hour Plays: Lancaster, a project that has inspired 62 new works and has brought hundreds of local and regional theater artists together.

Six writers, six directors, twenty-five actors, and one production team will write, rehearse, and perform six short plays in a 24 hour period. The process begins Friday evening, October 4, with writers choosing actors from a pool of talent. The six writers work through the night and hand their work to directors early Saturday morning, October 5, the day of the performance. After negotiating for their choice of play, directors, along with their play’s actors and a crew of stage technicians, prepare for the 7 pm performance.

Creative Works is thrilled to announce that this year's The 24 Hour Plays: Lancaster will debut the organization’s brand new ticket pricing structure: Pay What You Decide. Originated by ARC, Stockton Arts Centre in the United Kingdom and first brought to America by Azuka Theatre in Philadelphia, Pay What You Decide (PWYD) is an exciting frontier for the Lancaster theater community. While Pay What You Can pricing asks patrons to pay for a show before they see a performance, and is traditionally used as a promotional, limited time offer, PWYD allows patrons to reserve their tickets ahead of time and pay after the performance. Creative Works intends to continue using this pricing model for all of its future events. PWYD allows all patrons to assess what the value of a performance is for them individually and removes the risk of spending money up front on a new performance they might not traditionally attend with a traditional ticket pricing structure.

All tickets are free to reserve, and there is no obligation, or suggested minimum, to pay.

Reservations are highly encouraged as The 24 Hour Plays: Lancaster has sold out multiple years. Availability may be limited at the box office on the night of the performance

PLEASE NOTE: TICKETS TO THE EVENT GET YOU VIEWING OF ALL 6 PLAYS - YOU DO NOT NEED TO BUY MULTIPLE TICKETS.
