Screen Shot 2018-03-21 at 6.50.44 PMWHAT IS PLAY-IN-A-DAY?

It’s 10 TEAMS of theatre artists creating and performing short works under the guidelines of a 24 hour time frame and a common theme.
The writers are being given the theme and their individual ‘twist’ at the beginning of a 12-hour period of their own choosing that is their window for creating the script. The directors and performers will know nothing of their script until it is unveiled to them bright-and-early Saturday morning and will be working furiously to present them to the audience that evening.

Where: Lake Howell High School Theatre 4200 Dike Road
Time: Box Office 6pm. Silent Auction 6:30-7pm. Showtime 7pm.
