Arkansas Young Playwrights Showcase
Featuring a new performance by the LatinX Theatre Project
About the showcase:
TheatreSquared is proud to present, for the seventh year, the Arkansas Young Playwrights Showcase. This year, T2 will feature three original short student works as well as a new performance by the LatinX Theatre Project. The LatinX Theatre Project promotes literacy, performing art, and other projects that focus on giving a voice to the Latin American community in Northwest Arkansas. Their inaugural work, Follow Me @ Tio Sam, was featured in the 2017 Arkansas New Play Festival. The group has received support for its work from the Walton Family Foundation, University of Arkansas Brown Chair of Literacy, Arts Center of the Ozarks, and Northwest Arkansas Community College. Performs Saturday, June 16, 11am at TheatreSquared. Free admission.
