Welcome to Scotch'n'Soda Theatre

We are Carnegie Mellon University's premier student theatre organization. Initially dedicated to the
creation and production of orginal musicals, we now proudly perform both professionally published
and student-written shows. Students of all backgrounds are welcome to write, compose, design,
direct, perform in, and otherwise become involved with every aspect of each production.

February Slot: 24 Hour Play Fest!

February 19-20

There are no proposals, no auditions. Come as you are, with your unique vision, and let’s make something brand-spanking-new! Scotch’n’Soda began as an original theatre organization. Following our fall show Behind Closed Doors, this February production will continue this year’s ode to original work. We are calling out to actors, directors, techies, stage managers, and writers. Sign up! Writers will begin with a blank slate and work all night. With the support of each other in a writers’ room, they have less than 9 hours to put together 10-30 minute plays for 2-4 actors each. Then comes the hand-off to directors. Contrary to the way things are normally done, the writers pick the directors they want to put on their piece. Directors have about 2 hours to get to know the play and cast it. Actors and tech designers will come early in the morning for a table read, then get right on to rehearsing and putting together designs for a show that occurs completely online. At 8pm on Saturday night, the show must go on, no matter what.
