Sixteen students wrote 13 student-written plays for the Playwrights Festival 2016, which took place in Rugby Theater April 28-30.
Drama teacher Christopher Moore directed and led students throughout its production and organized the event as a whole.
The festival was comprised of performances that ranged from political commentaries to genres such as horror and comedy.
Auditions were held Feb. 16 and 17 in the Drama Lab. A 34-member committee selected the plays from 32 submissions.
The rehearsal process involved after-school practice consistently throughout the week.
“It was a great experience where I got to meet a lot of people who I wouldn’t have otherwise met and made friends with,” Playwrights actress Alexa Frandzel ’18 said. “It is also so great that in a short amount of time, you are able to see so many stories and get to know so many characters.”
