Stage West is pleased to announce the performances for the 13 th annual Festival of the Kid

performances, which will be live once again this year! This unique festival was originally conceived by

Rob Bosquez, Jr. and Dana Schultes in 2009, and its first performance was presented in December of

that year. Their idea was simple: produce plays written by kids and use their peers as the performers. 

Since that time, the Neighborhood Play Contest has drawn hundreds and hundreds of entries.

North Texas students were invited to write a short narrative, either fictional or biographical, with

themes such as cultural, neighborhood, family or current issues encouraged.  The plays chosen have

been cast using students and directed by seasoned professionals.  

Performances will be at 6:30 and at 8:15 on May 16, 17, and 18; different pieces will be presented on

each of the nights. The May 16 performances will be kid-friendly; material with more adult content

(age 12 and up) will be presented in the May 17 th and 18 th performances.
