A Day To Play

  • KD07 (Saturday night meeting) Bentley's Bar (Sunday night Performance venue) (map)

A Day to Play is back for 2015 guys!

What is this wonderful sounding event you may ask? Well, it's kinda like the 48hour film fest only half the length and way more unpredictable. And FUNpredictable (we're sorry, we had to. It IS going to be a lot of fun)...

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

Order of Events-
Saturday @ 7:30pm- Meeting in KD07 for team assignments and the low-down of how everything will run before the performance
Sunday @ 7:30pm- Performance at Bentley's Bar- $5 entry for audience members.

If you're interested in taking part, (writers, directors and actors) you can register by flicking an email through to president@dramasoc.org.nz. No experience needed, just a good sense of fun and perhaps some spare underwear. You never know.
