P2K YOUTH THEATER Traveling to Youth Conference with The Hundred Dresses

The P2K Youth Theatre Program ensures that all the wonderful experiences adults enjoy at Playhouse 2000 are also available to young folks.

In the same way P2K participates in the AACT/Fest cycle of One-Act-Play competition, our Youth have entered the festival fray with a production of Ralph Covert and G. Riley Mills’ play adaptation of Eleanor Estes outstanding novel The Hundred Dresses.

We’re proud to say that the group earned an invitation to participate in the Texas Nonprofit Theatres Youth Conference June 12 to 16 in Irving, Texas. They’ll join more than 20 companies whose young actors will create outstanding performances over the five days of the festival.

Companies apply to perform at the Youth Conference, bringing their own show to be performed for the other conferees and the general public, with tickets available for purchase at the box office before each show. Each of the shows receives feedback from a qualified Commentator, adding to the educational value of the showcases.
