Come to the 20th Annual New Play Festival
When: September 28th-October 1st, 2022
Ticket Prices: Free
For the two decades, Centre Stage has counted it a privilege to celebrate works from far and wide as part of our New Play Festival. It has always been the goal of the festival to promote nationwide new work development and encourage a broad range of regional perspectives to participate. Now, for the fourth year in a row, we turn our attention to local playwrights, honoring artists from right here at home!
On September 28th, 29th, 30th, and October 1st, Centre Stage’s 20th Annual New Play Festival will consist of readings of the three finalist scripts starting at 7:30 pm and a Saturday reading of Playwright in Residence, Arlene Hutton. Light refreshments will be served in between readings along with talkbacks regarding each script. At the close of the festival on Saturday night, a winner will be announced. Previous winners include Sharks and Other Lovers, Pouf!, and The Purest Form of Hope. The winning author will receive a cash prize and be in consideration for our 2023-2024 season. Audience members present will help choose the winner!
As always, this event is free and open to the public.
“The Color Purple” was a joyful theatrical experience brought to life by an incredibly talented local cast! It made me laugh, cry, dance, sing and cheer what a triumph! Well done Centre Stage!”
