About the 24-Hour Miracle:

The 24-Hour Miracle brings together numerous artists from an ever-expanding list of local performance groups including Perseverance Theatre, Theatre in the Rough, Juneau Douglas Little Theatre, Juneau Underground Motion Picture (JUMP) Society, Poetry Omnibus, Morally Improv-erished, and Li’l Buoy Physical Theatre, as well as KTOO public radio, Capital City Weekly, and the Juneau Empire. Past 24 Hour Miracle plays have gone on to be performed at the Last Frontier Theatre Conference.

Since its debut in 2006, the 24-Hour Miracle has grown into Juneau Douglas Little Theatre’s signature event.

Four teams of local writers, directors, and actors will spend 24 straight hours creating four short original plays for performance.

Here’s how it works: a theme or topic will be chosen at random (literally out of a hat) and announced at 8 p.m. on Friday night; writers then spend the next 12 hours writing, delivering scripts to their director and actor teams at 8 a.m. the following morning; directors and actors then rehearse for 12 hours; curtain rises at 8 p.m. Saturday night.  

Actors run a wide range of ages, talent, and experience—and the list is still growing. Anyone and everyone is invited to sign up and act, right up until the theme announcement on Friday night. It’s a great way to get involved in Juneau’s theater without much time commitment. The only requirement: if you sign up, show up.
