DCPA Announces Finalists for Regional High School Playwriting Competition
Thursday, January 28, 2016
The Denver Center for the Performing Arts (DCPA) is pleased to announce the finalists of the third annual Regional High School Playwriting Workshop and Competition for Colorado high school students.

“These young playwrights are the next generation of theatre. It is our responsibility and our privilege to encourage them and give them the tools to succeed,” said Allison Watrous, Director of Education at the DCPA. “This year we received a whopping 212 submissions from high school students across 18 counties. The three finalists will be paired up with working Colorado theatre professionals and will have their plays brought to life by professional actors as a part of the Colorado New Play Summit.”

The 2015/16 Regional High School Playwriting Workshop and Competition served 3,110 students and 82 teachers in 60 schools over 18 different counties. Teaching artists conducted 145 workshops that resulted in a record-breaking number of play submissions. Each finalist’s Theatre or Language Arts teacher will receive a $250 gift certificate for books, supplies or other teaching tools for their classrooms. Finalists also receive a $250 cash scholarship and complimentary pass to any reading or production at the Summit.

All three finalists, Kendra Knapp (Valor Christian School), Gabrielle Moore (D’Evelyn High School) and Jessica Wood (Denver Christian School)will receive mentorship from a professional playwright and a staged reading at the 2016 Colorado New Play Summit. One of the finalists will also have their play produced during DCPA Education’s 2016 summer program.
