The Phoenix Theatre Presents WONDER WOMEN 
Annual 24-Hour Theatre Festival 
August 24 and 25, 2018 

The Phoenix Theatre in Edmonds is holding their annual 24-Hour Theatre Festival Friday and Saturday August 24 and 25. This year’s festival is entitled Wonder Women and features six short plays all written and directed by women.

Approximately 18 local, well-known actors, six playwrights and six directors will gather at the Phoenix Theatre at 7:30pm on Friday, August 24th. Actors will arrive wearing a costume of their choosing and with one prop. Directors blindly choose the actors, and playwrights are randomly assigned to each group.

The writers then leave to create a 10-minute play overnight using their given costumed actors and various props. Actors and directors reconvene early on Saturday, August 25th, to rehearse until the performance at 7:30pm. The public is invited to attend the selection process on Friday evening, then return for Saturday evening’s performance to see the six short plays that have been fully created in only 24 hours. 

“The Wonder Women theme of this year’s festival is especially exciting,” says Phoenix Managing Director Debra Rich Gettleman. “There are so many talented women in this area. We want to bring their talents and extraordinary skills to the front of these creative projects.”

Festival dates:
  • Kick-off and selection process – Friday, August 24th at 7:30pm - Free 
  • Performance – Saturday, August 25th at 7:30pm - $20 
  • Location: The Phoenix Theatre, 9673 Firdale Ave, Edmonds 98020
