Young Playwrights' Theater inspires young people to realize the power of their own voices.

The New Play Festival

The New Play Festival is an annual celebration of bold new voices.

Each year Young Playwrights’ Theater honors plays from a diverse group of YPT students in a production that celebrates the playwright’s craft.

Professional actors, dramaturges and directors collaborate with student writers to create an evening of dynamic theater. 

YPT is proud to honor the bold, gritty and bright new voices of young writers.

Objective:  The New Play Festival celebrates and honors the work of our young playwrights.
