The Vanguard Class
Join us on May 15th at 5PM PST for our inaugural Teen Play Festival! 9 students across 4 states and 3 time zones have worked very hard to put together a showcase of three 10 minute plays written, performed and produced by young artists.
How to Watch:
The performances will be streamed simultaneously on YouTube and Facebook. The YouTube presentation will be available for free on our YouTube Channel (Maroon Arts). If you would like to make a $5 donation, you can purchase a ticket and stream through Facebook events (MaroonAC).
If you are as excited about this event as we are and would like to support future events, you can always make a tax-deductible donation through our fiscal sponsor Fractured Atlas.
