The Northern Arizona Playwriting Showcase was founded in 2007 when two graduate students in the Creative Writing Program at Northern Arizona University, Patricia Petelin and Brooke Wonders, and Creative Writing Professor, Ann Cummins, proposed a collaboration with members of the Theatrikos Theater Company, Virginia Brown and Linda Sutera, to host an annual 10-minute play contest. The mission:  to encourage new plays by novice and seasoned playwrights, to provide acting and directing opportunities for new and experienced dramatists, and to celebrate new work at the Doris Harper White Community Theater in Flagstaff.

The 10-minute plays are performed as staged readings and no memorization is necessary.

The 2018 Showcase will be September 7, 8  @ 7:30 pm and 9 @ 2:00 pm at the Doris Harper-White Playhouse in Flagstaff.  11 W Cherry Avenue
