Unscrewed Theater, 3244 E. Speedway (rear entrance)
Actors of all ages, types, genders, and level of experience are needed for Old Pueblo Playwrights’ 12th Annual Play-In-A-Day Festival.
12 Playwrights paired into 6 sleep-deprived teams, tasked with writing 6 short 3-character plays overnight…
6 Directors tasked with rehearsing the plays through the day with a team of Actors cast just that morning, for public performance that very evening!
One superb Improv Group—Not Burned Out Just Unscrewed—as hosts…
Equals 24 hours of Dramatic Fun and Laughs!!
ACTORS PLEASE NOTE:
· No auditions necessary; we’ll give you time to introduce yourself to our directors. (Resumes & headshots welcome, but not required)
· No lines to learn: all Old Pueblo Playwrights shows are presented with script in-hand.
· Great short term commitment—one day!
· Nearly everyone who responds gets cast in a show.
· Fun environment: great way to “stretch” yourself by creating a character on the fly.
Do YOU have what it takes to rehearse and perform a short play in just one day? Great! We’ll see you 9:00 Saturday morning, November 21st, at the rear entrance of Unscrewed Theater, 3244 E. Speedway (across from the Loft).

By the way, we still have openings for Directors and Overnight Playwrights. Contact Dave if you’re interested!
Here’s more about PIAD:
On Friday night (11/20), we will gather at Unscrewed Theater for NBOJU’s regular show, which starts at 7:30 PM (only $5 admission!). During that performance, or just after, we will perform three solemn PIAD rituals: the selection of the 3 props and the one line of dialog (chosen by the audience) which must be used in each show, and the random pairing of the 12 playwrights into 6 teams. At the conclusion of the evening (about 9:00 PM), the playwrights will be sent home to write their play throughout the evening/wee hours. On Saturday (11/21), the playwrights will turn in their scripts by 6 AM, the scripts will be printed and copied for the directors who will arrive at 8 AM, actors will arrive at 9 AM to be cast, and the directors will rehearse the plays throughout the day at Unscrewed Theater. On Saturday afternoon, the shows will be “teched” (minimal), and on Saturday night at 7:30, the shows will go on (script in-hand)! A distinguished panel of judges will deliberate on the winners of the coveted Jack Frakes Prize while NBOJU performs a short set. At the conclusion of the evening the prizes will be awarded and everyone will pass around hugs and pats on the back for a great weekend of mirth and sleeplessness! Sound like fun?
