    SUNY Orange seeks writers, directors and actors to create six plays in 24 hours Middletown — SUNY Orange Cultural Affairs, in cooperation with the English and Arts and Communication Departments invites applications from individuals to come and experience theater through the 24 Hour Play Project. You need not be a playwright, director or actor. Six writers, six directors, and twenty actors from the community will convene for the first time on Friday, Sept. 23, to write, direct and perform in six original ten-minute plays - all in 24 hours. During the evening, they will share materials such as props, characters and situations, and then decide on a theme. The writers write throughout the night and in the morning present the directors and actors with six 10-minute plays which they rehearse all day and perform that night, Sept. 24, beginning at 8 p.m. During the entire event, participants are mentored and guided by David J. Glover, production artist and director, and Anna Rosen, SUNY Orange English instructor and veteran of the 24 Hour Play Project. The entire 24 Hour Play Project takes place in Orange Hall Theatre, located at the corner of Wawayanda and Grandview avenues in Middletown. The performances are free and open to the public.
