Festival of the Kid

This one-of-a-kind play festival uses the top 17 winning entries from Stage West's annual Neighborhood Play Contest and stages them during this 3-day festival. Plays are cast using 30-40 teens from the North Central Texas area (ages 13-19). They are then professionally produced using seasoned designers, directors, and actors. Come see the results!
