2022 PIAD

Play-In-A-Day 2022 is celebrating its 20th year under the Producing Artistic Direction of Beth Marshall, its 11th year produced by BMP benefiting TOP TEENS Scholarships fund partnering with Penguin Point Productions. This year, we are also doing a 50/50 raffle that will benefit GOPAR. (Greater Orlando Performing Artists Relief) 

The intentionality on this year’s PIAD has a special focus to the LGBTQIA+ community and allies (as you will note the D in Day of this year’s logo is now G). All members of PIAD are very ok with saying GAY! GAY! GAY! And We are proud to say that our artists are either members of the LGBTQIA+ themselves or are strong allies of the LGBTQIA+ community. 

All ticket & silent auction proceeds benefit BMP TOP TEENS program dedicated to training teens ages 13-19 years in all areas of theatre and arts activism. 

All artists involved are donating their time and talents to these TEENS & GOPAR

What is PIAD?

Teams of local artists work in the course of 24 hours to create short plays (10 min. or less) with a theme given to them the day before and these works are presented off-book with minimal props/set/costumes for a live audience.
