­The 15 Hour Project

June 18, 2011

Theatre Momentum is remounting our signature event, The 15 Hour Project. Join us for an entire day of workshop, rehearsal, and performance, with some great Chicago directors. Every time we run this event, it's been a complete blast. Check it out:

The 15 Hour Project consists of three parts:

A morning workshop (10 AM-2 PM), modeled after TM's Workshop-in-Progress, followed by an afternoon rehearsal period (3-6 PM) and an evening performance (8 PM).

The entire day of the 15 Hour Project will take place at the Theatre Momentum Studio (1800 W. Cornelia Ave), beginning at 9:30 AM (check-in) on Saturday, June 18th. Performances will begin in our Studio C at 8 PM.

Performances are FREE, this year, so invite whoever you like for some great, smart improv!

Schedule is as follows:

9:30 AM — Check in

10 AM-2 PM — Workshop session with Tony Rielage
Tony Rielage, Theatre Momentum's Artistic Director, will run a 4 hour workshop to generate three brand new show formats. The structure of this workshop will use input from all workshop participants to create some truly unique shows. These shows will be performed a few times, polished a bit, and prepped for rehearsal. At the end of the WiP session, the participants will break into three groups, to work on one singular format.

2-3 PM — Lunch break. Pizza lunch and drink provided.

3-6 PM — Rehearsal.
After lunch, the three show forms are handed off to our three directors, Peter Athans, Theresa Ohanian, and Zach Zimmerman. Workshoppers will rehearse the formats they created that morning, tweaking, polishing, and preparing them for performance. The shows being prepared will aim for a 30-35 minute show length.

6-7 PM — Break.

7 PM — Call Time.
Actors arrive in Studio C, are given the run-down on how the evening will be structured.

7:30 PM — Doors Open
Doors open. Performances for the 15 Hour Project are FREE this year, so invite everyone you know!

8 PM — First of The 15 Hour Project shows begins.
Performances will run about 30-35 minutes apiece, with one intermission.

Cost: Only $15!

That's right. This entire day of workshop, rehearsal, and performance will cost $15, to cover the expenses of the day. This includes a pizza lunch and snacks/drinks.

For more information, or to register for The 15 Hour Project, please send an email to

The 15 Hour Project is open to anyone, though we ask that participants have a minimum of 6 months improv/acting experience. Due to the nature of this event, it's simply easier to work it this way. If you have questions regarding this restriction, just ask.

That's the story on The 15 Hour Project. For full details about the directors, payment, and location, please check out the Theatre Momentum website. Thanks!
