“The Plays-in-a-Day is an event where students sign up to either be writers, directors, or actors. Director Mark Begovich) puts together the groups and starting at 7 p.m. on Friday the writers and directors work together to construct an 8 to 10 minute script for their amount of actors,” junior actor Neve Ryan said. “The next day the plays are put together.”

The performance starts at 7 p.m.

The actors go home Friday at 9 p.m. and come back to school Saturday at 8:30 a.m.

“We start gathering ideas as soon as we know our groups,” junior actor Rudy Munoz said. “Then the next morning we put all the plays together and that’s the magic of this play.”
Although 24 hours might be a short time to get create the play, the actors enjoy working together.
“(I like this play because) it brings together the entire group of individuals,” Ryan said.
