Neighborhood Play Contest

Every year, North Central Texas area students are invited to write a short play, narrative or monologue for our Neighborhood Play Contest.  Sample themes include: culture, family, social issues, and life struggles or accomplishments. This year we have selected 9 plays and 8 monologues from 7 different schools to be staged and performed during the Festival of the Kid in May.
