All In A Day Play Festival is Back!

Dreamwell Theatre, City Circle Acting Company, and the Coralville Center for the Performing Arts are proud to present the All In A Day Play Festival on October 7 and 8, 2016.

On Friday night, October 7, seven writers, seven directors, and 35 actors will come together to create seven original plays. Writers are randomly assigned a location, a genre, and other dramatic detail to include in their scripts. Writers, actors, and directors brainstorm ideas while the writers scurry away to create a ten minute play by 8 a.m. Saturday morning. At that time, the actors and directors take over.

On Saturday, October 8 at 7:30 p.m–twenty-four hours from the start of the festival–theatre lovers will be treated to seven original plays at the Coralville Center for the Performing Arts. Plays and performances will be adjudicated and awards will be presented.

Sign up for actors will open at 7 p.m. on September 11. Links to the sign up form will be posted at and at The first 35 actors who sign up will be in the show. There will be 25 slots for adults and 10 slots for students in 7th-12th grade. Slots fill quickly so sign up early! Once slots are filled, a waiting list will be kept.

The time commitment for actors is roughly two hours on Friday evening, October 7 and the entire day and evening of October 8.
