Famous for Fourteen-Forty

A 24-hour play-in-a-day project

Creation time: April 18-19, 2014 from 7 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Performance: April 19, 2014 at 7 p.m.

SDA would like to seduce you into the best day of your life – a day in which you and your colleagues create a play in a single day!
At 7 p.m., prompts will be delivered to writers who will then enjoy a night of furious scribbling until 7 a.m. when the scripts will be sent through a stage manager to the directors. Then the actors, who have signed up in advance, will be cast and called to rehearse. The designers will be called on to find props, clothing items, sound effects, and the most ideal placement of lighting instruments. By the time 7 p.m. rolls around again, our series of short plays will be ready for a public showing.
If you want to sign up for any of the bolded positions, contact SDA President Nicki Karl at and put “FFFF” in the subject line.

Stravinsky’s score for the ballet brought the composer international acclaim.

North Star Ballet’s production features choreography by Norman Shelburne, Artistic Director, scenery and costumes designed by Celeste Sullivan, whose designs for the North Star Ballet include The Nutcracker, Coppelia, and Alice in Wonderland, and lighting by Kade Mendelowitz, Professor of Theater, University of Alaska Fairbanks.
