Vermont Young Playwrights Festival -- AUDIO UPLOADED!
Young Writers Project was pleased to partner with the Flynn Center, Vermont Stage Company and a dozen schools and young playwrights in this year's 2012 Vermont Playwrights program which included the Annual Festival at FlynnSpace on May 15. The plays were fantastic. The final selections included pieces that were given cold readings, dramatic readings and then, in the evening, seven were presented by professional actors.
YWP recorded the event and streamed it live. It received 250 views by people who devoted 50 hours combined to watch the plays. YWP also had folks text their reactions to the playwrights.
WE HAVE UPLOADED AUDIO FOR ALL THE PLAYS FEATURED IN THE FESTIVAL! To read and listen, go to Final Selection. To see the texted responses, go to youngwritersproject.org/poll1. Over the next week we will make the video recordings available and will get word, via here and the Flynn, as to how playwrights can view and download the video for free.
