Young Playwrights Project

ATC's annual Young Playwrights Project is for Middle and High School Students anywhere, but we especially would like to read scripts from NJ teens!

Our youngest winner had just entered Middle School. She was 10! So age is not necessarily a factor.


Young PlaywrightsATC Studios is pleased to announce the winners for our 2017 exciting playwriting project for Middle and High School Teens, “Gotta Laugh.”

This year over a dozen schools were represented, and several individual submissions! Evaluators read and selected 10 scripts to be produced and performed for the public. Shows were cast, rehearsed and performed on June 9, and the audience and entertainment professionals voted on their three favorites.

Didn't catch the show? Don't worry! You can see the top three on video right here!

Special Thanks To...

All of the evaluators, directors and actors who contributed their time and talent to make this project a success!

And to the PCCHC:

This program is made possible in part by a grant administered by the Passaic County Cultural & Heritage Council from funds granted by the New Jersey State Council on the Arts.
