Each 24/7 is unique and needs, dare I says wins, its own personal thank you. Here is 2018, a thank-you poem (full or in-jokes) to the artists who made it happen:
Last night was a product of your love and your care
I admire your passion and the talent you share
I miss you already, I hate when it ends
Artists I say, make the best friends.
The dating game was just like money in the bank
The contestants unaware, and the winner was Frank
Then a woman alone talked with a fork and knife,
Until scuba-diving Perry brought love to her life
Soccer friends, on Halloween, in costumes were dressed
Till one jumped from a bridge thinking she was possessed
And a date, what a date, in a garden in our venue
With a hipster couple and a trickster-chef”s menu
Proud parents with children, well wouldn’t you know
They fought to the death! Then one baby read Poe.
Yes, Mr. Whiskers felt lonely, but let’s not be stupid
Sometimes we need help from Pat dressed as Cupid
And in Hollywood, three writers who started from zero,
Proved what we all know, every woman’s a hero
Plus a dance break surprise to watch and to listen,
It was West Coast Swing from your stage manager Kristin
Our designers were amazing! So I say, Hey Team,
Thank you for the gift of 24/7 ‘18.
This show rocks. This crew rocks. They need to. Our 24/7 team has 7 plays to “tech” in just a few hours. Even we don’t know how they do it. Maybe it’s because over 75% of our tech crew teammates are women. Men play football and start wars; women create life and make the world a better place. Just an observation. …Back to the theatre! Come see the magic on Jan 20th.
Maybe we’ve gone too far. You tell me. Don’t these actors have too much talent to be in 24/7? But, here they are in 24/7. Well, maybe they’re each a bit crazy; and maybe that’s just about right. Thanks, you grossly talented bunch of stage-worthiness, you!
Wow is the word. And with the list below, “wow” maybe even be the theme. Well, we don’t know yet if “wow” will have anything to do with this year’s 24/7 theme, but we do know it will describe the plays from these amazing writers taking the 24/7 overnight play writing challenge. Wow:
