Playing Our Part: Stories from QuaranTEENS

The Henry Fonda Theatre Academy is asking youth ages 13–18 to submit poems, monologues and art work for a brand new project as part of a Teen Staged Reading Summer Series.

Now more than ever, we need art to lift us up or give us perspective. As the future artists and storytellers of the world, we want to hear about YOUR experiences dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic. How has the national crisis affected you? What is it like to social distance from your friends? What things have you lost or learned? Be as creative as you want! This is your time to express yourself and our team will offer feedback and support as you create your story.
Submissions are being accepted through May 15 and will be presented as a staged reading to the public at the end of the summer.

Email your submission to HFTA director, Mackenzie Dehmer, at
