Promising Playwrights Festival

  • Abrookin 99 Kent Street Albany, NY, 12206 United States (map)

In the fall of 2015, Arts Letters and Numbers Ché Perez and Frida Foberg were invited by NCBIs Ira Baumgarten and Albany High School Theater Directors Ward Dales and Noelle Gentile to follow the Theater Ensemble students as their works got developed. Through out the months, original student written works have carefully been created and are now ready to be shared to the audience. 

Albany Highschool Theater Ensemble's Promising Playwrights Festival 2016 will be held in the Abrookin Theater in Albany. Seven student written plays will be performed over the course of four days. Ché and Fridas involvement in the students work, grew in to their creation of the set design. 

We are very honored that Arts Letters and Numbers have been part of this journey, and we excited about what this collaborative work can bring.
