Touchstone Theatre's Young Playwrights’ Festival presents a 90-minute evening of student works penned by third- to eighth-grade playwrights in Touchstone's lab residences. During educational residencies held at various schools, Touchstone's passionate ensemble instructs miniature Shakespeares in the art of playwriting and feather-quill throwing. Seven student plays are invigorated by the creative enthusiasm of community directors, skillfully produced by Touchstone Theatre, brought to life by vital performers, and finally storyboarded in stone by talented masons. After the final curtain, theatergoers can indulge their clapping and cheering impulses throughout a closing awards ceremony.
