Rover Dramawerks  ...theatre off the beaten path. Live Professional Theatre in Downtown Plano
One Day Only 10

It's almost here!


One Day Only X Call For Participants!

Rover Dramawerks' highly anticipated 24-hour play festival, One Day Only is back! The TENTH installment of "seven short plays from concept to curtain in just one day" returns on June 30 at the Courtyard Theatre of Plano!

One Day Only was first produced in the metroplex in May of 2000 by Audacity Productions. Rover Dramawerks teamed up with Audacity for the next three festivals, and Rover went solo to present One Day Only 5 through 9. All of these are productions unlike anything ever done before, even by us! For this is an event in which an entire one-act play festival of seven plays is written, produced, directed, rehearsed, teched, and performed in a single day. Just 24 hours.

At about 9:00 p.m. on Friday, June 29, a group of writers, directors, actors, and technicians will get together for the first time. A brief get-to-know you session will include providing ideas for the writers (to be drawn out of a hat) and taking pictures of the actors (no headshots and resumes are allowed). Then the writers will stay at the theatre and work through the night, composing a ten to fifteen minute play based on the subject he/she drew.

At 6:30 a.m. (yes, THAT early!), the directors return. They will quickly read the plays, decide who directs which play, and cast the plays from the pictures taken the night before. The actors show up around 8:00 a.m. and meet with their director and fellow cast members. The writers go home to get some sleep while the plays are blocked memorized, and rehearsed by the director and actors.

Tech rehearsal begins around 4:00 p.m. Then curtain is at 8:00 p.m., when all of the plays are presented for the first time at the Courtyard Theatre of Plano. That's right - seven world premieres!

And YOU can be a part!

Rover Dramawerks is looking for a few good writers, directors, and actors for One Day Only X, and we want YOU! Experience is not mandatory, but open-mindedness, spontaneity, guts, and a can-do attitude are MUSTS.

If you're interested, please send e-mail to
odo-x@roverdramawerks.com STARTING ON MONDAY, JUNE 11 AT 1:00 P.M.

Do not try to sign up even a few minutes early

- you will be told to resend your request. Note that this procedure is different from some ODOs in the past. No one will be allowed to sign up early.

Include the following information:

1. Your name
2. E-mail address that you check on a regular basis 3. Your phone number(s)
4. W
hat role you would like (writer, director, or actor)

5. If you have participated in past ODOs,
........which ones (example: 3, 4, 5, 9)
........what your roles have been for each
........(example: actor for 3, writer for 4 and 9, ........director for 5)

6. Where you heard about One Day Only X

The last three are for informational purposes only and will not have any effect on whether you get in or not - it really is first come, first served!

Please note that you can do ONLY ONE and you must specify which - otherwise you will be listed as an alternate for those roles. If you would consider more than one role, indicate which is your preference and we will try to accommodate you with your first choice - again, you will only be able to do one.

IMPORTANT: If you are interested,
YOU must take the initiative to sign up yourself.
We will not accept sign-ups from third parties.

There are 7 writer positions, 7 director positions, and about 40 actor positions. This is first come, first served, so if you're interested, be by your computer at 1:00 p.m. on Monday, June 11! Writer and director positions especially fill up VERY quickly - often within MINUTES! The cut-off for signing up is a week before the event or as long as roles are available, whichever comes first.

Minimum age requirement for any role is 15.

PLEASE NOTE: Because the writer and director roles are limited, we have a "no three in a row" rule. This means if you have participated in the last two One Day Only projects - One Day Only 8 and One Day Only 9 - as a writer both times or as a director both times, you must choose a different role for One Day Only X. For example, you might try acting if you've been a writer twice. Branch out! Try something new!

Also note that due to the lightening-fast nature of this project, there is no pay and no comps are provided. However, it is a TOTAL BLAST and well worth your time. You'll also be amazed at the contacts you'll make!

We look forward to working with you on this incredibly fun, unique project! For more information, check out www.roverdramawerks.com
or www.onedayonly.org.

PLEASE NOTE: The performance on June 30 at 8:00 p.m. is OPEN TO THE PUBLIC! Tickets are only $10, so even if you are not interested in participating as an actor, writer, or director, we would love to see you in the audience that night!
