This year, Towson University’s Center Stage held its 30th Annual Young Playwrights Festival. The Young Playwrights Festival is “a yearly competition that invites student playwrights in K5-12th grade in Maryland to submit their original works”.
Centennial junior Miguel Fernandez wrote his play, “Enlightenment in Skyzone”, which was performed by Center Stage actors at Towson University on Monday, May 2.
“[“Enlightenment in Skyzone” is about a guy] who has been working at Skyzone for ten years and discovers self purpose, thanks to the ghost of John D. Rockefeller,” said Fernandez, who wrote the play for a school assignment. Fernandez’s play was submitted to the festival, and was one of five out of a total of 600 entries to be performed.
Fernandez said he “plans to pursue theatre and screen writing in college.”
Having his play performed at Towson’s Center for the Arts takes him one step closer to fulfilling his career in the future.
