Thanks to the Courier for the great coverage in Kudos for the Young Playwrights Festival! It is a super program designed to promote literacy and theatre appreciation among our youth. Months are spent by Prescott Center for the Arts volunteers on the judged and juried competition for grades K-12. I love it because it provides these young playwrights the opportunity to experience the entire process of seeing their work go all the way from page to stage.
I would like to note that there is a major correction/clarification to the Kudos article. A PCA volunteer, Tiffany Antone, created the template for YPF and served as the program’s coordinator, the position wasn’t called chairman then, those first three years of YPF. In recognition of her three years of service as the coordinator during those critical first years of getting YPF off the ground, hence making YPF a reality, the top prize and scholarship presented to the winning young playwright at the close of the festival is the Tiffany Antone Grand Prize.
