ABOUT US

The Blank Theatre Young Playwrights
COMPETITION & FESTIVAL is the premiere nationwide forum dedicated to developing and producing plays and musicals by playwrights 19 years of age and younger.

Since 1993 we have developed and produced 248 plays and musicals by playwrights as young as 9 years old!


How does the COMPETITION Work?

Accomplished professional writers make up a team of mentors who help winning playwrights prepare their work for public performance.

Experienced directors and mentors work closely with playwrights during the rehearsal process.

Best of all, winning playwrights see their work performed on stage in Los Angeles by professional actors!
