24 Hour Play Festival
In October 1995, the first production of The 24 Hour Plays took place on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. Inspired by Scott McCloud’s 24 hour comics (comic books composed in a single day), founder Tina Fallon saw an opportunity to bring together a community of creative artists in a time-limited experiment. The project was intended as a one-time-only event. This event slowly started to gain popularity when many famous Broadway stars began to participate.
BHS was able to participate in the world wide phenomenon for the first time this school year (2019-2020), getting students from all through out the Kern High School District. We hope to continue this newly found tradition for many more years!
