The five finalist plays and playwrights in the 2019-2020 Delaware Young Playwrights Festival have been announced!

· Distant Shores by Melody Fritz of Appoquinimink High School

· Fortunes by Zach Hitchens of Cab Calloway School of the Arts

· Coffee Shop by Nikolas Mandalas of Dover High School

· The Lost Kids by Lauren McAllister of St. Elizabeth School

· The Mind’s Eye by Bridgette A. Rivers of St. Elizabeth School

The finalists will participate in a series of playwriting workshops with professional theatre artists from Delaware Theatre Company to further refine their writing and ready their works for a public showcase performance on March 12, 2020 at 7:30 p.m. on the Delaware Theatre Company stage. 

Now in its ninth year of the relaunch of this acclaimed program, DYPF invites students in grades 8-12 to write a play based on a theme inspired by one of Delaware Theatre Company’s productions. This year’s theme was inspired by a quotation from the Patrick Barlow adaptation of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, produced by Delaware Theatre Company in December of 2019. The quotation reads, “And so I say ‘Open Sesame,’ Bob. To all the real treasures of the world. All the true treasures!” These words, spoken by the character of Ebenezer Scrooge after his transformative night, served as a springboard for the DYPF theme: Write a play in which a character seeks, finds, or identifies his or her version of treasure as a result of life circumstances.
