The 27th Annual Madison Young Playwrights Festival

The 27th Annual Madison Young Playwrights Festival brings to life the work of young playwrights who completed a play as part of a 10-week playwriting program conducted by Playwrights Theatre in the Central Avenue School, Kings Road School, Torey J. Sabatini School, Madison Junior School and St. Vincent Martyr School. Several plays were chosen and these plays will be presented with professional actors at each of the schools. Performances are not open to the public.
