Every year, NAPS holds community workshops related to our showcase. These range from writers workshops where playwrights can submit a close to final draft of a 10-minute play, actors will do a casual staged reading or table-read, and then the group will give feedback on the play. We also offer directors workshops that help first time directors learn more about how to direct actors in a performance of a staged reading or play.
We have two NAPS competitions:
-one for current 8th-12th graders in Arizona (which is free to enter) (one play will be chosen by the NAPS board)
-and another for everyone else, world-wide (And yes, we do get entries from around the globe each year but we really love when local playwrights take part and win! Judging is blind, so our judges never know who wrote the plays or where they are from until the winning plays are announced to the public. 9 plays will be selected by judges this year.)
So please share with talented current 8th-12th graders you know, as well college students and amateur and professional writers in the Flagstaff area.
