Join us for the 36th Annual Young Playwright’s Festival—a collaboration between Wharton Center’s Institute for Arts & Creativity and the Michigan State University Department of Theatre.
Twelve Michigan high school students wrote theatrical monologues that were performed and filmed by MSU Department of Theatre students. (And I, your GLUT Lady Jane, long-ago grad of MSU, perform one of the monologues that required “maturity.”) This year’s work is a stunning display of creative writing and acting, giving voice to area students and providing a platform for their astute observations of life in these times.
Reserve your free ticket to watch the monologues at any time from June 21-27, 2021. https://www.eventbrite.com/e/young-playwrights-festival-tickets-158499485227
CONTENT WARNING: Some of the works featured in this year’s Young Playwright’s Festival discuss topics and have language that may be unsuitable for younger viewers. — (My monologue, regarding birthdays and Pearl Harbor, includes no “unsuitable language”.)
