Every spring, Burning Coal Theatre receives play submissions from local 6th-12th graders that are then professionally produced for the public. Burning Coal has assembled a team of skilled theatre artists to bring these young writers’ stories to life.

The KidsWrite Festival was created in 2004 to encourage young writers in central NC by producing their original one act plays. Finalists are chosen from numerous submissions. This year, the scripts have been produced digitally and will be presented in a virtual livestream format here: .

The selected scripts have been published into a book, which can be purchased online.
