7 Teams. 7 Plays. 24 Hours. Join us for another round of THE 2-4-7, one of our favorite annual events! New and returning teams from Albuquerque and beyond will test the limits of digital theatre-making as they write, rehearse, design, and perform short plays within 24 hours. This year's teams are Blackout Theatre, Two Worlds, Theatre 3, The Classless Chaps, Red Rocks Community College, Sandia Prep, and Wild Card!
Join us live February 26 to meet the teams and discover the rules!
The show streams February 27 (for free!) on most platforms, thanks
in part to the City of Albuquerque's Cultural Services Division.

Experience El Campo Santo through letters, plays, stories, journals, original art and more, presented in an interactive map of our beautiful state.
