The New Jersey Young Playwrights Festival
Professional Actors and Directors present staged readings of the winners of the New Jersey Young Playwrights Contest in a two-day festival. Elementary and Junior School plays receive a rehearsed concert reading, High School plays receive a rehearsed staged reading. All readings are followed by a talk-back with the audience, the writers, and the directors. Writers receive a certificate of accomplishment, and all HS winners receive a Governor’s Award.
Before the final performance, writers are guided by theatre professionals on play revision. High School winners are assigned professional dramaturgs, who work with them to the day of the Festival. All writers attend rehearsals, where their input is sought and revision is encouraged.
