The 10800 Project

(A musical in one week)


We asked MacMS to write and perform a 

short musical in just one week!! We were aiming for 20 minutes 

of songs and dialogue telling a little bit of a story.


 You're probably wondering how the week worked? Well:

On SUNDAY at 1pm the Scriptwriter (Sarah Campbell),
Composer (Kate Finnis) and Lyricist (Shannon Browne) were 
put into a team by the project coordinators (Jo Finnis and Sarah Morris) 
and given their stimulus: TIME. 
Auditions were then held, and 
until midnight the writing team began work 
on their initial idea.

6pm-12pm,TUESDAY 6pm-12pm,  
9pm -1am the writing team worked 
together in the Lighthouse Theatre!
THURSDAY 7-12, FRIDAY 6pm-12pm the actors were be introduced
to their scripts and songs and begin rehearsing

SATURDAY 16th AUGUST: 10am-8pm rehearsals with an
8pm show and a screening of Aladdin afterwards.

This was a super exciting project and we are very thankful
for the dedication of the creators, cast, and crew and the support of all 
the MacMSers who came to see the show! 
All up: 57 hours/3420 Minutes   
We'll be putting a recording of the show on Youtube
eventually, so keep an eye out for it!
