New Voices Young Playwrights Festival

Next week, Actors Theatre of Louisville closes its season with the 13th Annual New Voices Young Playwrights Festival. Every year, participation in the Festival is staggering. And it is an inspiring indicator of the artistic impulses and courage of these young playwrights. It’s also a tribute to the teachers who devote untold hours to coaching these students. (In recognition of that, ATL offers free tickets to any teacher who contacts the box office.) This year, 910 students in grades six to 12 from 23 area schools submitted 10-minute plays, and through a blind review process, eight plays have been selected for full productions by ATL’s Professional Training Company.
