PCA YOUNG PLAYWRIGHTS FESTIVAL SPONSORED BY
PCA is thrilled to present the very exciting, 4th annual
Young Playwrights Festival
Prescott Center for the Arts’ YOUNG PLAYWRIGTHS FESTIVAL is dedicated to giving young, aspiring playwrights and writers the opportunity of having their creations produced on stage under the direction of experienced directors.
