Started in 2004, Burning Coal Theatre Company’s KidsWrite! Festival is a celebration of plays written by 6th-12th graders residing in North Carolina. Students submit one-act plays, and with a team of professional theatre makers, Burning Coal produces selected scripts.

This year's plays include Disaster at Lakeview, by Avery Seppala (Enloe High School), Regrets of Man, by Noah Howard (Fuquay-Varina Middle School), Through the Years, by Carson Adams (Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic School), and To Be Deceased, by Brynn Bolick, Sophia Moore, Bridget Morin, Lavie Nguyen, Gibson Scoggins, and Morgan Strickland (Franklin Academy).
