24/7 Actors 2020

Some of the bravest, or craziest, actors you’ll ever meet. They sign-up to fully rehearsal a random role that doesn’t exist yet in a play that hasn’t yet been written.

But with the talent on stage, listed below in reverse alphabetical order, it all comes together like a… scuba diver order from craigslist, or cupid in firefighter boots and a tutu, or the remembered lover of a WWII vet, or free-range parents, or profane monks, or a dentist selling pot, or back-up singers on a deserted island, or… well, you’ll have to come to see how it all works out. But promise you this: you won’t be disappointed.

The 2020 24/7 actors are:

  • Virginia Wawner
  • Lee Susen
  • Rasheed Robinson

Announcing FAITH: The Gospel According to George Michael

FAITH: The Gospel According to George Michael is in development for performances in the spring, summer, and fall of 2020.

FAITH features Dr. Rev. Johnny Goodlove and his 1980s-style televangelism bringing you hope, love and faith with readings from the gospel (the album), sing-a-longs, testifying, healing, storytelling, call and responses — and his personal journey to accepting George Michael as his personal lord and savior.

Is there faith? What is faith? Who needs faith? Dr. Rev. Goodlove preaches and teaches that all the answers you need can be found in the lyrics of the 1987 Grammy Award Winning, Platinum Selling, and Breakout Solo Album FAITH by Wham! co-founder George Michael.

TRUMPILTON!

When you create an overnight theater festival in 24 hours, the day after the inauguration, you may end up with an 8th, special bonus, presentation. With apologies and respect to Lin-Manuel Miranda and Jonathan Groff, 24/7, last night, presented the one and only performance of TRUMPILTON!

Thank You Poem – 24/7 2017

To the cast and crew of 24/7 2017 —

Well it happened again in the blink of an eye
When a group of great artists reached for the sky
In the middle of January without any snow

In 24 hours you created one amazing show
Blank Minds Think Alike that’s what we showed
With an art class sketching to the Boss’ Thunder Road
Look now – stuck behind screens – it’s a family flotilla
Completely oblivious to a dancing gorilla.
Michael, Jan, Peter and a lady killer
Bought down the house with The Brady Cure thriller
Then two gay fathers played the adoption game
With their teenage son and his Notre “Dame”?
While a former graphic artist and her best friend were
Finding lost friendship through the songs of John Denver
A refined British beauty went chip-chip-charoo
In a French maids’ outfit with Lord Smoocheroo
Our crew was epic, the opposite of tragic
What they did in one day was nothing but magic!
It’s theater. It’s art. And, yes, fun still won!
Like a one time showing of the hit Trumpilton!
And so, if the circus closes, and you’re searching for your worth,
Remember what you did last night, The Greatest Show on Earth!
