Giving@First 2017

Giving@First is a one-night-only festival of short plays that will be created from page to stage within a 24-hour period. Our talented crew of more than 20 writers, directors, and actors will scramble overnight and all day long to create a full festival from scratch! This play-in-a-day event will be a unique experience to see live theatre that is fun, frantic, unforgettable, and for an important cause!

All donations and sales collected at this event were given to Americares' Hurricane Disaster Relief efforts, which directly aids survivors of Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria. For every $10 they receive, Americares provides $200 in aid. Help us make a difference in the lives of those in need.
