Winners of the 2012 Young People's Creative Writing Contest Short Play category saw their visions come to life at the Tulsa Performing Arts Center on October 20th! The PAC presented selections from all 12 award-winning plays. An accomplished staff of University of Tulsa Theater Department students performed the plays under the direction of Michael Wright, Applied Associate Professor of Creative Writing, Theatre & Film. At the conclusion of the event, each winner received a certificate and took a picture with the director and cast. Thank you to the Tulsa Performing Arts Center Trust, Williams, ONEOK, and the Meinig Family Foundation for making this experience possible for young Tulsa writers!
