Write a Play. Your Story. Our Stage.

Regional Youth Playwriting Workshop and Competition


What:
“Your Story. Our Stage”: A new one-act playwriting competition designed for area high schools.
Why: To nurture Colorado’s young playwrights; develop theatre artists and audiences; develop new plays; and advance literacy, creativity, writing and communication through playwriting.
How: Submissions were judged blindly by Denver Center artistic, literary and education professionals. Ten semifinalists were identified and three finalists received a cash scholarship of $250 AND a staged reading in the 2014 Colorado New Play Summit on Saturday, February 8. In addition, each teacher of the three finalists received a $250 gift certificate for books, supplies or other teaching tools for their classrooms.

One-Sided Fish by Laurain Park selected for 2014 summer production.
