All in a Day Play Festival

Saturday, January 26

Presented by Dreamwell Theatre and City Circle Theatre Company

The All in a Day Play Festival sponsored by Dreamwell Theatre and City Circle Theatre Company of Coralville will be held Friday and Saturday, January 25 and 26. This is the eighth time these two theatre companies have joined forces to sponsor this award-winning event to create and present six 10-minute plays in just 24 hours. The final performance will take place Saturday, January 26 at the Coralville Center for the Performing Arts. 

On Friday evening, January 25th, six writers, six directors, and 30 actors will come together to create six 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 leave to create ten-minute plays by 8:00 am Saturday morning when the actors and directors receive the play. 

The six original plays will be performed on Saturday, January 26 at 7:30 pm at the Coralville Center for the Performing Arts—24 hours after the start of the festival. Plays and performances are adjudicated and awards will be presented for performances, plays, and directors. 

The sign-up form for actors will open at noon on Sunday, January 6, 2019 at The first 30 actors who sign up will be cast. Actors must be at least 16 years of age. Slots fill quickly and a waiting list will be kept. The time commitment for actors is 2 hours on Friday evening, January 25 and the entire day and evening on January 26.
