Young Writers Prepare for “10 Minute Play Festival"
For students in TADW’s playwriting elective, this is crunch time. Already, the young writers are busy putting the finishing touches on their one-act plays, which will be cast (using actors from TADW’s improvisation elective), rehearsed, and staged in the Studio Theatre on July 30 and July 31 during the annual “10 Minute Play Festival.” “From relationships to family life, and from fantasy to reality—everything is fair game for these playwrights,” says TADW director Doug Kaback, who teaches the playwriting class with CSUN students Toon Sie, Melissa Fillbeck and William Coates. Kaback urges parents and friends to get their tickets early, because this event is usually a sell-out. (For tickets, visit www.csun.edu/tadw.) Some material may not be suitable for very young children.
