Theatre Odyssey’s Eleventh Annual Student Ten-Minute Playwriting Festival

Sat 02/04/2023 - Sun 02/05/2023

This Eleventh Annual Festival presents the eight plays selected by our professional readers and written by area high school students from grades nine through twelve (or home-schooled equivalent). One playwright, whose play is selected by our qualified judges for BEST PLAY, will receive the Verna Safran Prize--a $1,000 cash scholarship. The author of the Runner-up Play will receive a $500 cash scholarship, and the remaining authors will receive $100 cash scholarships.

Performances of all eight plays in the competition for Best Play and Runner-up are on February 4, 2023, beginning at 7:30 PM and February 5 at 2 PM. A live announcement and the Verna Safran Prize presentation for BEST PLAY and for Runner-up Play will follow the February 5 matinee.

This year, award-winning playwright, actor, and director Jason Cannon was engaged to work with each of the eight playwrights to strengthen their works for this festival. The funds for Mr. Cannon's involvement were made possible by a gift to Theatre Odyssey from Melliss Kenworthy Swenson made in memory of her late husband, Curt Swenson.
