Humble Play Youth Division

Humble Play
2nd Annual Appalachian New Play Festival


ARTS/West is partnering once again with the Dairy Barn in Athens, OH to offer a one day youth playwright’s workshop (age 11-17) at the Dairy Barn: July 25, 2007, 9 AM-4 PM
Taught by Mary Tensing: Actor, playwright, director, and teacher. A number of theatres have commissioned her to write new works and she has directed for The Women's Theater Initiative, The Know Theatre Tribe, and The Children's Theatre, as well as a number of touring productions for Cincinnati Opera's Education Ensemble and Theatre IV. Mary is a graduate of Cincinnati's School for Creative and Performing Arts and Northwestern University. Due to a grant from the Athens Foundation this workshop is FREE. SPACE IS VERY LIMITED. Please contact ARTS/West: (740) 592-4315 or to register or for more information. The youth division of the Humble Play is supported by a grant from The Athens Foundation.


During the 2nd annual Humble Play Festival, October 1 – 7, 2007 there will be opportunities for children ages 11 – 17 to have their own short play (10 minutes in length) or long play (one act) performed for an audience at ARTS/West. There will also be workshops available for young participants that are to be announced as we get closer to the festival.

So, put on your creative cap and sit down with your note book and write a play. Send an email to ARTS/West at or download applications from the links below. Make sure you have had your parent/legal guardian’s permission to apply and they must sign the forms – no submissions will be accepted without these signatures. We’ll let you know all about what to expect at the festival after we receive your work.

If you have any questions you can email us at or call 740/592-4315 and ask for Kelly or Emily.

The Humble Play: Appalachian New Play Festival is presented by: ARTS/West: Athens Community Gateway to the Arts and the Athens Municipal Arts Commission
