A Day To Play

  • Bentley's 90 Ilam Road Christchurch, Canterbury, 8041 New Zealand (map)

Like the V 48-Hour Film Festival... but without the V sponsorship (yet!) and with half the time, it's A Day To Play! The perfect mix of low and high pressure theatre for students of any capability.

Teams have 24 hours to write, direct, and rehearse a short play, with nothing but three prompts to start from.

Make your choice: front row to see the carnage or fight for glory on stage!

Fight For Glory

A number of prizes are available, at the discretion of the judges, to those brave enough to risk it all for fame and glory. Will your team be the one with the medical emergency this time round? Only one way to find out... sign up below by 6pm Friday 2nd March.

Individual sign ups welcome. We will introduce you to the rest of your team on the night :) Good luck!

Watch the Carnage

Bring along your friends and family for a guaranteed laugh, either at or with our performers. Let the games begin! .... on the 2nd March at 7 pm 😉
