Young Playwrights Festival

In partnership with the Florida Studio Theater, Chautauqua Theater Company participated in an interactive, three part playwriting project for local 3rd & 4th grade students. In less than 14hrs of rehearsal, a select group of us company members rehearsed & performed 14 winning plays of 403 submissions as part of this Young Playwrights Festival, directed by the incredible Katherine McGerr. The festival celebrates bringing theater and playwrighting into schools and encourages young people to embrace their imaginations. It was amazing to see these kids feel seen and proud of their work coming to life!
