4-Play YYC is a single day play creation festival modeled after Catalyst’s Over The Edge with 4-Play in Edmonton. The basic concept of the 4-Play YYC Festival is to fully produce four original productions in a single day. This means each show is written, rehearsed, designed, built and performed within a 14 hour time span.

We are pleased to present the Calgary premiere of 4-Play on October 12th, 2013 and we are looking for fellow artists to take on the exciting challenge and participate in the following categories:
The director is responsible for interpreting the script and working with the actors to block their given show. After receiving the script at orientation, they will have time to discuss the show with the designers. They will then have an hour to block and rehearse with the actors.
The playwright is responsible for creating a script (topic of their own choice) within the two and a half hour time frame at the theatre location. The parameters of the script include:
Approximately 20 minute length
4 characters (2 male, 2 female)
Must include the pre-determined line chosen by 4-Play
The costume designer is responsible for designing and creating the costumes the actors will wear in the show. Each design team will be assigned a color, which the design must follow.
The set designer is responsible for designing and creating the set that will appear onstage for the show. Each design team will be given a collection of supplies in their assigned color scheme.
An actor in 4-Play YYC will be one of four artists who perform in each of the four shows being created. There will be two male actors and two female actors. Experience with improvisation is an asset.
The audition process will take place in the form of 2 hours of improv games on Saturday, September 14th at the Rocky Mountain College studio.
