MadLab Theatre presents: Young Writers Short Play Festival
When: Submissions due: December 15, 2011
MadLab Theatre is extending its outreach to young playwrights in local and regional high schools in Central Ohio. The goal is to produce a group of 15 minute short plays written by high school students for its Young Writers Short Play Festival in MadLab’s 2012 theatre season. Playwrights can submit their short play to MadLab any time between now and December 1, 2011. Scripts will be selected in January 2012. After this, playwrights will work with adult mentors who are known and published playwrights to workshop, stage read, and revise scripts as needed. This learning environment will provide education and creativity for young playwrights work to be produced for the very first time. MadLab will then produce all chosen scripts in end of July/ Early August 2012.
