Beth Marshall Presents is going full-steam ahead with their longtime annual Play in a Day extravaganza, and they want you to stay away! Wait, come back, Play in a Day is still happening, it's just going fully online with the help of Central Florida's Social Distance Showcase.

Participating teams will be given their themes on Friday, June 19, and then will devise and craft their plays over a frantic 24 hours on Zoom (and Zoom inherently adds an extra element of anxiety), with the resulting stagings happening on Facebook Live. Fourteen all-star Zoom teams are already set up and raring to virtually go.



Stay Away Play in a Day happens on June 21, at 5:30 p.m. Watch the action unfold via livestream on the Beth Marshall Presents website or Facebook.

Proceeds from ticket purchases or items purchased at the event's auction will go straight to the Beth Marshall Presents Top Teens Scholarship Program.
