Denver Center One Act Play Competition

Each year the Denver Center for the Performing Arts hosts a one act play competition for high school students. Entrants are required to submit a one act play. Finalists win a cash prize for themselves and their school in addition to a staged reading that is included in the Colorado New Play Summit.

One play is selected for full production by the Denver Center education department, written, cast, and produced by teens.
