DRAMASOC Presents: A Day to Play

  • DW!, Jack Mann Auditorium 53 Solway Avenue Christchurch, Canterbury, 8041 New Zealand (map)

A Day to Play is back for 2014!


Much like the 48hour film fest only half the length and way more unpredictable, A Day to Play is back to kick off UC Arts Week.

Teams will write, direct and rehearse brand new short plays over a period of only 24 hours and you're invited to see the train-wrecks, triumphs and undoubtedly hilarious results!

Entry is only a gold coin on the door, so bring your friends, family and your favourite pet (animals not permitted in Drama Workshop 1) along on Sunday the 11th of May for a chuckle and, who knows, maybe even a tear.



If you're interested in taking part, (writers, directors and actors) you can register by flicking an email through to AD2P@dramasoc.org.nz. Experience is helpful but by no means necessary.
