The Palm Springs Young Playwrights Festival (PSYPF) is an annual festival that showcases selected works from students as staged readings using professional actors and directors. The Fifth Annual festival will take place at the Palm Springs Cultural Center on June 4, 2023 at 12 PM and will showcase three winning plays written by local high school students. Plays written by two students from Valley View High School in Moreno Valley and one student from Riverside Polytechnic High School in Riverside were selected as this year’s winners.
PSYPF promotes and encourages theatrical creative writing to all elementary, middle, and high school students within Riverside County. This year, PSYPF received a record 39 submissions. Each play was reviewed by a special committee that selected the 2023 winners, each on whom will receive a mentorship to enhance their playwriting skills, a staged reading public performance of their play, and a $500 scholarship to help further their career in the arts.
