The Bay Street Theatre in Sag Harbor, New York, will wrap up its 2001 season with a Dec. 8 Young Playwrights Program. The event, at 7 PM, will feature short short plays written, produced by and starring high school students from Sag Harbor's Pierson, Shelter Island, Southampton, Bridgehampton, Westhampton Beach, and The Foreign Language Academy for Global Studies (F.L.A.G.S.) in the Bronx.
The program is head by Emma Walton, Bay Street's co-artistic director, as well as program administrator Marilyn Koch and teaching artist Mary Spitzer.
According to a press release, "students meet twice weekly with Bay Street teaching artists including Bill Burford, John Beuscher, Mary Spitzer, Tom Gustin, and Christine Murphy, and explore the craft of playwriting through improvisational acting and writing exercises.... The short plays address important issues, feelings and questions faced by High School students today."
Tickets are $10 and can be charged by phone by calling the Bay Street Box Office at (631) 725-9500.
