One Day Only 11!
Rover Dramawerks highly anticipated 24-hour play festival, One Day Only is back! The ELEVENTH installment of seven short plays from concept to curtain in just one day returns on March 15 at the Courtyard Theater 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 X. 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, March 14, 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 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 Theater of Plano. Thats right seven world premieres!
