What is it?
Twin Beach Players hosts a playwriting competition that is open to all school-age children in the state of Maryland. To involve as many young playwrights as possible, all submitted scripts will be judged and scored. The top scoring plays will be invited to be performed at the festival in music stand readings. KPF18 will take place over one weekend in August 2024. There will be one evening of high school age plays, one evening of middle school age plays, and one afternoon of elementary school age plays. Three judges will award first ($75), second ($50), and third place ($25) prizes with a final prize going to the audience favorite ($75) nightly. The total number of festival readings will depend on the length of the highest scoring submissions and each night will include approximately 2 hours of plays.
Teachers interested in using this competition as part of their class should register as a “Teacher” and identify the Maryland county in which they teach.
