Young Playwrights Festival

Five original works, written by local high school students, will be chosen to be produced by students and performed on the stage of City Opera House.

City Opera House, National Writers Series and the MSU Federal Credit Union Institute for Arts & Creativity are happy to announce the 21st Annual Young Playwrights Festival. The Young Playwrights Festival is a showcase of six original works, written by local high school students, produced and performed at City Opera House.

Michigan high school students are invited to submit a one-act play to a juried competition. This year submissions were juried down to 5 finalists whose plays will be produced. The five finalists will each be assigned a professional theatre mentor who will assist the playwright with revising their play. Each finalist will receive a $100 award and a staged production of their play performed by Traverse City-area actors.
