Since 1979 the Marilyn Bianchi Kids’ Playwriting Festival (MBKPF) has been an integral part of Dobama Theatre’s mission to provide educational outreach programming. Our goal is to provide a platform for children to express their thoughts, hopes, dreams, and creativity through the writing of original plays. Students in grades 1-12 from all over Northeast Ohio submit original short plays that are evaluated by a panel of readers. Selected winning plays receive a professional production on Dobama’s stage during the MBKPF weekend each June.
The MBKPF is free to the public and is the culmination of Dobama’s year-long educational outreach in schools all over Northeast Ohio.
