This time next week, the 24 Hour Show will kick off.
At the Bradford Playhouse on Friday night, Bradford Uni’s musicals society (BUSOM) will learn what show they’re performing for the paying public exactly 24 hours later. Everyone stays up all night, learning songs and lines, building set (safely!), painting, rigging, sewing… and eagerly anticipating the breakfast butty run.
I thought the show poster had featured on this blog already, but my post about the 2014 event pre-dates it. Let’s rectify that right now. Behold, the 24 Hour Show 2016 poster:
It’s big and bold, and i’m proud of thinking up that headline. There’s a list of ways to get involved down the right hand side – you don’t have to sing to help out a musical society!
I would, however, like to re-jig the list next time to fit costumes and makeup in. Sorry guys!
The clockface background is adapted from the old 2014 poster (see the post linked 2 paragraphs ago).
I first designed this poster for the 2015 show, with a Red/Orange colour scheme. What colour’ll be next year? (I’m betting Green).
I’ve booked a 4-day weekend off work this time, intending to go the distance with the techies and propmasters. Come down and see us Saturday night – it’ll be entertaining, in spite of (or because of) a high chance of incoherant actors!
