Canyon Crest Academy (CCA) student Devyn Krevat, 17, was one of the winners of the California Young Playwrights Contest for ages 18 and under.

Playwrights Project will produce its 29th annual festival of “Plays by Young Writers” at The Sheryl and Harvey White Stage in the Conrad Prebys Theatre Center at The Old Globe on March 6-16. The festival will feature winning scripts from its California Young Playwrights Contest for ages 18 and under.

Contest winners were selected from 165 submissions by students statewide. Four scripts will receive full professional productions, and five scripts will receive staged readings in this highly regarded festival of new voices.

Devyn Krevat won a staged reading of her first play, “Case of the Missing Pencil Tips” in 2007, when she was in sixth grade.  Now a senior at Canyon Crest Academy, she’s done it again.  This time Devyn’s play “Fairy Tale” will receive a full production.  In this smart and humorous tale, the audience sees what happens when a narrator fights for control as the characters highjack his story and these traditional fairy tale characters defy their prescribed roles.

All contest submissions were evaluated by theatre professionals who volunteered their time and expertise. Final judges in the selection process included Deborah Salzer (founder of Playwrights Project), Martin Benson (founding co-artistic director of South Coast Rep), Stephen Metcalfe (director and screenwriter of films such as Pretty Woman and The Marrying Man), and Delicia Turner Sonnenberg (artistic director of MOXIE Theatre). Program Manager and Producer Derek Charles Livingston spearheaded the evaluation process, which focused on a sense of truth, imagination, fresh use of language, and grasp of dramatic structure. All contest participants who requested feedback received individualized written critiques.
