Sleep Comes to Life

Sleep, a play written by Olivia Kersh ’24, was performed Wednesday, May 18, at the 2022 Festival of the Kid at Stage West. Kersh’s play (along with 24 others) was chosen for performance out of a group of nearly 600 submissions. The contest drew double the entries this year from 23 schools. Kersh was inspired by professional playwright Rob Bosquez who visited with students during Musical Theatre class to talk about playwriting. 
The Neighborhood Play Contest is for North Texas students in grades K-12. Students are invited to write a short play, scene, poem, monologue, or prose and submit it to the contest for the chance to be produced onstage during the Festival of the Kid.
