Young Playwrights Festival 

Submissions are now being accepted for the 2014/15 Season!

Do you know a budding writer? Are you looking to stimulate your child's or students' creativity? Encourage them to submit to Center Stage's 29th annual Young Playwrights Festival (YPF). 

Students in grades K-12 throughout Maryland are eligible and may get to see their play on stage! Numerous plays are honored each year with workshops, in-school performances, and even performances at Center Stage. 

The Young Playwrights Festival does not have specific guidelines that plays must follow in order to be considered. We encourage students to follow their creativity and write the play that they want to write. There are no restrictions on length, number of characters, theme, etc. Plays of all lengths, subjects, themes, etc., have been honored.
