First Published Jan 06 2012 09:31 am • Last Updated Jan 06 2012 10:56 am

As the name implies, "The Fifth Annual Student Slam" is a student production. But the festival doesn’t take just any doe-eyed high schooler with a penchant for the stage. More than 150 aspiring thespians auditioned for this year’s festival, with 25 making the cut.

This Saturday they’ll descend on the Rose Wagner stage, backed by a bevy of professional Utah playwrights and directors, to create and rehearse five 10-minutes plays in the space of 23 hours. As the festival’s tagline goes: "You spend the 24th hour with us to see the results!" The festival is an educational program of Plan-B Theatre Company and a fundraiser for the Theatre Arts Conservatory, which has instructed more than 600 Utah students in the ways of professional theater over its seven-year history.
