NC Young Playwrights Festival Showcase is such an amazing

experience for students because they see their imagination come to life in a very real

way. Students eyes light up as they see characters that they had only seen in their mind become moving, speaking, and breathing characters on stage. After their performance, the students have an opportunity to share with the audience their inspiration and their thought process behind their work. This moment of praise and focus on each student leaves them with a strong confidence in themselves and an opportunity to discuss their works with professionals from all areas of North Carolina.

 

Selected playwrights and their teachers will receive an e-mail once selections are made regarding detailed information about the showcase.

This year we need students to perform our Outstanding Plays

Each school that would like to participate will need a maximum of 9 students. Your school will receive the scripts on March 6th. Rehearsals in the space with the playwrights will be on April 22nd from 9-10 AM for the HS Plays and 10-11AM for the MS and ES Plays. We will be provided pizza for performers and playwrights between the final rehearsals and the showcase.
