PUPFest 2013

Student actors performing BACON IS NOT KOSHER at PUPFest 2013
For the past few years I have participated in a great program called PUPFest. Sponsored by Junior Players and Kitchen Dog Theater the Playwrights Under Progress (or PUP) Fest is a celebration of student written plays from some of Dallas's brightest student playwrights. The plays are performed as staged readings (emphasis on staged) by a group of great student actors. Professional artists from the theatre community are hired in to direct. Over the course of five days, in 3 hour rehearsals, the plays are explored and then put on for an open-to-the-public audience at the McKinney Avenue Contemporary.

I had a great group of kids to work with June 10-15. The play was called BACON IS NOT KOSHER by Naomi Cohen and was a neat little comedy about (mis)understanding and faith.
