BENEFITING: Philadelphia Young Playwrights
From March 10-19th, Philadelphia Young Playwrights (PYP) Young Voices Monologue Festival will feature the creative voices of 18 amazing young writers from the Greater Philadelphia Area. This year the performance will take place at The Drake - 1512 Spruce Street, Philadelphia. The goal is to sponsor one of these powerful pieces, which will help to ensure that PYP can continue to put student voices center stage. Even a gift of $10 helps get one step closer to reaching a sponsorship goal of $250.
