Playwrights On Parade is a stage reading festival that showcase the new works of "rising star" playwrights.  Our first festival garnered such overwhelming submissions (to include scripts from South Africa, Germany, and England), we extended it from three hours to an all-day affair.  The festival showcased 13 playwrights and 39 thespians from Charlotte, NC and surrounding areas.  Proceeds were donated to continue lending a voice to significant social justice issues utilizing the performing arts.  We are making preparation for the next one.
