Snoqualmie student honored at Young Playwrights program
Maddie Storie, a seventh-grade student from Snoqualmie, attending Eastside Catholic School was honored at the Young Playwrights Program (YPP) Celebration at the ACT Theater in Seattle on Monday, Dec. 9.
ACT Theater selects eight outstanding plays by young playwrights each year and showcases them in staged readings in the Young Playwrights Festival, which takes place in early March.
“YPP gives our students opportunities to interact with working professionals in the arts,” said Arlene Naganawa, an Eastside Catholic School humanities teacher. “Our students are fortunate to become a part of the vibrant theater community in the Pacific Northwest.”
Storie’s play, “The Yellow Canary,” earned an honorable mention for the ACT Festival.
Other Eastside Catholic School students honored were Chloe D’hers, Rowan White and Anders Vogele of Redmond; Conrad Gregg, Adam Gregg, Grace Tacchetti, Lizzie Iwicki and Max Steele of Sammamish.
