City Circle Acting Company and Dreamwell Theatre to host All in a Day Play Festival on September 21 City Circle Acting Company of Coralville and Dreamwell Theatre will host the 6th Annual All in a Day Play Festival on September 21 at the Coralville Center for the Performing Arts. The two theatre companies will once again join forces for this award-winning event to create seven, ten minute plays in just 24 hours.
On the night of Friday, September 20, seven writers, seven directors, and 35 actors will come together to create seven original plays. Writers are randomly assigned a location, a genre, and one other dramatic detail to include in their scripts. Writers, actors, and directors brainstorm ideas and then the writers scurry away to create a ten minute play by 8:00 am Saturday morning. At that time, the actors and directors take over.
Twenty-four hours from the start of the festival, after a whirlwind of creative mayhem, theatre lovers are treated to a variety of unique shows at the Coralville Center for the Performing Arts. Plays and performances are adjudicated and awards will be presented for performances, plays, and directors.
This has become a very popular event, for participants and audience members alike. In its sixth year, it’s sure to be as exciting and dynamic as ever!
The plays will be performed on Saturday, September 21 at 7:30 pm at the Coralville Center for the Performing Arts. Tickets are $8.50 and can be purchased online at http://www.coralvillearts.org/ or by calling 319.248.9370 or in person at the CCPA box office at 1301 5th Street and at the Coralville Recreation Center at 1506 8th Street.
