Play in a Day

Play in a Day Logo

Play in a Day is an annual event hosted by Arnold Theatre in the spring for all 8th-12th graders. 

Students are randomly placed on teams where they perform the role of playwright, director, or actor and work together to write, design, rehearse, and perform an original one act play in just 24 hours.

There is no experience necessary!

The event begins Friday 6:00-9:00 P.M. and continues the next day at 9:00 A.M. 

There will be rehearsal all day Saturday which will end in a performance of each show for a public audience at 6:00 P.M. in the Helen Blackburn Arnold Auditorium.

General admission donations accepted at the door

No fee or pre-registration is required to participate. You will need to bring a lunch and snacks on Saturday. 

Teachers are encouraged to attend the festival with their students.
