5th Annual Northeast Indiana Playwright Festival:
In addressing the creative writing needs of the communities we serve, the Civic Theatre has established a playwright festival encouraging emerging and professional playwrights to submit their unproduced and unpublished one act or full-length plays to be presented as a reading or production May 30 - June 15, 2014. When the imagination is free to explore, not knowing any boundaries, and without intimidation, self-esteem and confidence matures in developing one’s craft. Being a playwright requires soul searching, risk taking, courage, research, readings, feedback, and lots of rewriting that will hopefully lead to a fully staged production. The Civic Theatre continues to foster the creative potential that is within us as actors, dancers, singers and now as playwrights.
