A group of Missouri S&T students will write, direct and perform six new 10-minute-long plays in 24 hours at Leach Theatre’s Overnight Theatre Festival this November.

The performances will begin at 7 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 5, in Leach Theatre of Castleman Hall, located on the Missouri S&T campus at the corner of 10th and Main streets in Rolla. The festival is free to attend and open to the public.

The night before the performance, a group of students and invited guest artists will be given a genre, a theme and a line of dialogue. The playwrights must write a 10-minute play by Saturday morning, then student actors and directors spend the rest of the day rehearsing each play before performing them in front of a live audience.
