The Young Playwrights Festival is a showcase of six original works, written by high school students, produced by MSU Department of Theatre undergraduate and graduate students,

and performed at the Wharton Center on the campus of Michigan State University.

Michigan high school students were invited to submit a one-act play to a juried competition. Twelve semifinalists were chosen from the submissions, and from those 12, the jury selected the six finalists above whose plays will be produced. Each finalist has been assigned a professional theatre mentor to help the playwright revise their play, and each finalist received a $200 cash award and a staged production of their play to be performed at the

Pasant Theatre.

The other six semifinalists will receive a $100 cash award. For more information on Wharton Center's Young Playwright Festival, please visit
