When the 28th annual outing of the Marilyn Bianchi Kids' Playwriting Festival
hits Cain Park this weekend, there'll be a 20-minute intermission before the plays of the high school winners are performed. That's so parents can remove the little ones, who just sat through performances of winning entries by elementary and junior high students. You know what that means: sex talk and bad words for the older kids! Dobama Theatre troupe members perform the best plays, all written by area children. The works run the gamut from drama to comedy to fantasy. Among the two dozen or so winners making their stage debuts are The Magic Eraser
, First Time
, and Beware the Blood Red Door
Fri., June 23, 7:30 p.m.; Sat., June 24, 2:30 & 7:30 p.m.; Sun., June 25, 2:30 p.m.
