The 2019 Vermont Young Playwrights Festival was a huge success! Three plays by YWP community members were chosen for staged or cold readings: Charlotte Hughes, middle school staged reading, May 2;  Adelle M. Brunstad, high school cold reading, May 3; Maisie Newbury, high school staged reading, May 3. Honorable mention went to Isa Blankenbaker! Congratulations, playwrights! And congratulations to Geoff Gevalt and Dayton J. Shafer for leading YWP's playwrighting workshop to produce the plays selected for the festival, and for filming the two-day event. Big shout-out to Geoff (who received flowers and a standing ovation) at the close of the festival!
