The Peekskill High School and Middle School Acting Classes will be accepting short play submissions for their 2nd Annual New Play Festival.  Students will be in charge of selection, acting, designing, directing, and producing chosen work which will culminate in a full-scale evening of drama in May 2018. This is a quest to expose our students to outside theatre resources and make connections with worldly practitioners.  Peekskill, NY, is an artistic, multicultural community just an hour north of Manhattan (Located in the historic Hudson Valley).
