On Feb. 2, high school students will have 48 hours to write, direct and perform an original play at The ArtsCenter in Carrboro.
The Feb 48 play festival is hosted by One Song Productions. The show will begin at 4 p.m. Tickets are $8 for students and $10 for adults.
Feb 48 is a high school student-led event. Katie Clark is one of the production managers for this year's Feb 48. Clark described the process of the three-day event.
“The event begins on Friday night where writers are given two lines from a book — one to start the play with, one to end the play with,” she said. “Then Saturday morning, everyone will meet. The actors and directors will rehearse that script all day, and then will perform it Sunday night.”
Clark said the overall goal of this event is to allow high school students to take on roles they wouldn't normally be able to do, such as writing or directing a play, and even stage-managing.
