Park Plays is a festival of ten short plays exploring and celebrating the events, environs, and denizens of Flushing Meadows Corona Park. Five plays will be commissioned from internationally known playwrights, and half will be selected from an open submissions process.
Show Stoppers 2017 was a great success! Kids from all around Queens and beyond came together to create 3 unique short musicals. Aided by our amazing team of teaching artists they wrote all the dialogue and about a dozen original songs for their shows. Their orginal musicals titled, Glitched, The Legend of the Unsinkable Ship and Sincerely Taco Cat, were performed on our Main Stage to enthusiastic family and friends. We loved creating these funny and thoughtful musical plays with the kids this summer and look forward to doing it again next summer. Please check back with Queens Theatre Education for more information on our New Program for kids 12 to 16 next summer!
