Rover Dramawerks off the beaten path. Live Professional Theatre in Downtown Plano
One Day Only The 13th!
Call for Participants

Rover Dramawerks announces
One Day Only The 13th!
Call For Participants!

Rover Dramawerks’ highly anticipated 24-hour play festival, One Day Only is back! The THIRTEENTH installment of
“seven short plays from concept to curtain in just one day”

returns on August 29 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 12. 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, August 28, 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. 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 13
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
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. An e-mail address that you check on a regular basis
3. Your phone number(s)
4. What role you would like (writer, director, or actor)
5. where you heard about One Day Only 13
6. Confirmation that you are at least 18 years of age

#5 is 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: YOU must take the initiative to sign up yourself.
We will not accept sign-ups from third parties.

There are
7 writer positions,
director positions,
and about 40 actor positions

That's IT - all - fini - done

Again, this is first come, first served, so if you’re interested, be by your computer at
10:00 a.m. on Monday, August 17!
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 18.
This is a new requirement due to the level of intense
commitment for such a taxing project, as it has proven
too much for younger participants
and their families in the past.

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 11
and One Day Only 12 -
as a writer both times or as a director both times,
you must choose a different role for One Day Only 13.

For example, you might try acting if you’ve been a writer twice.
Branch out! Try something new!

Also note that due to the lightning-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 and you'll end up right back here BTW ;o)

PLEASE NOTE: The performance on August 29 at 8:00 p.m. is

Tickets are only $12, 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!

ALSO NOTE: Audience members are not needed for 24 hours
you need to be there ONLY for the resulting
performance at 8:00 p.m. on
August 29 at the Courtyard Theater!
