Kids Writing Plays
Raleigh's Burning Coal Theatre Company premieres five new one-act plays written by high school students this weekend as part of KidsWrite, a festival that provides young writers the opportunity to get their work professionally produced, acted and directed.
The show opens tonight at 7:30pm. Host Frank Stasio talks with three young playwrights: Miles Ndukwe,a graduating senior from Millbrook High School; Michelle McGoogan, a junior at Enloe High School; and Sophia Holmes, a freshman at Research Triangle High School.
They are joined by Burning Coal director of education Jonathan Fitts who coordinates the project.
