Under the mentorship of Ethan Bowen, actor, director and writer, interested fifth and sixth graders are learning how to write a ten-minute stage play. Their first drafts received cold readings Monday, January 5 where feedback was provided by students and Ethan. Now is the daunting task of rewriting. Four plays will be selected to enter the festival where a team of judges will decide which plays go on stage. All students who write a play will attend the Vermont Young Playwrights Festival in May.
