An Invitation from Artistic Director John Pietrowski to
The New Jersey Young Playwrights High School Festival
WHEN: Tuesday, June 21, 2016, 7 PM WHERE: Starlight Room, Mayo Performing Arts Center, 100 South Street, Morristown ADMISSION: Free
You may or may not know about Writers Theatre of New Jersey, or you may be familiar with us by our old name—Playwrights Theatre of New Jersey. Now in our 30th year, we have a statewide reputation for high-quality arts-in-education programs and a national reputation for the development of new works for the stage.
As a local educator who works with students grades 9-12, I thought you might be interested in one of the most exciting events of our season. The High School winners of the New Jersey Young Playwrights Contest will have their plays performed as staged readings by a company of professional actors and directors. It is an exciting evening full of energy and fun.
The readings will be followed by a post-show discussion with the authors and directors.
The winning plays this year are:
Corn Maze by Francesca Badalamenti, Newark Academy
Death Rows by Jasmine Sharma, Bergen County Academy for the Visual and Performing Arts
Infinite Confusion by Myriam Burger, Bergen County Academy for the Visual and Performing Arts
Uncovering Moonshine by Cristina Lopez, Chatham High School
Visible by Jessica Dell Beni, Middlesex County Vocational and Technical Schools - East Brunswick Campus
WHERE: The Mayo Performing Arts Center, 100 South St., Morristown, NJ 07960
