MEET AND GREET
The Cast and Crew assemble anytime from 6.30pm on Friday evening in the bar of the theatre. Enjoy a drink with people, equally as nervous as you, before moving into the Function Room for a bit more of a social 'getting to know you'.
07.00 PM Friday
The Production Team go through the welcome and introductions before the main administration and 'housekeeping'. The cast will be handed details of the evening and any other show specific items that may be necessary.
7:30 PM Friday
THE BIG ANNOUNCEMENT
The moment when the title of the 24 Hour Musical is revealed.
Overnight rehearsals begin and the cast and crew work from 8pm Friday night through to 8am Saturday morning.
Once the show in the main auditorium has finished on Friday, around 11pm, the technical team start working on the lighting, sound and set.
This is your #momentofmadness and it continues through to the morning.
We use the Function Room for music, the Upstairs Studio for choreography, the Bar/Foyer/Box Office for general practice and the bar seating area to have a cry and wonder what on earth you've signed up for.
There are two quiet zones from 11pm:
The conference room is used for those wanting to run lines without distraction and noise of singing, choreography and music around them.
The studio becomes an area of complete dark and quiet. We expect the company to respect those that might need to sleep and keep this area as quiet as possible.
If you need to rest, do!
This isn't a test but a personal challenge and if you need to sleep for a short time then, as long as we know where you are, we can work around it.
08.30 AM Saturday
The all important breakfast call!
This is the one and only break where we ask all cast and crew members to leave the building and get tighter for a full fry up (or whatever your preference might be) to fuel you through the next 10.5 hours as you await the final performance.
A definite highlight of the rehearsal period and our reward for a full night of singing and dancing!
06.55 PM Saturday
YOUR 30 MINUTE CALL
A short break in the dressing rooms and final preparations into costume ready for the performance
07:25 PM Saturday

10.30 PM Saturday
