The deadline for the ArtsView Children’s Theatre PATHS (Performing Arts Theatre School) 2013-2014 Playwright Contest is coming up on Nov. 15.

Each year, the organization seeks original works from entrants from kindergarten-aged to adult. This year’s theme, "Heroes Assemble," is all about superheroes.

The winning plays are brought to life by participants in the Original Works camp, receiving either fully-staged productions or staged readings, and will premiere to the public during the summer of 2014. Area authors, schools, teachers, and homeschool communities are encouraged to participate.

Sandi Taylor, one of the founders of ArtsView, said, "This is the best thing we do every year."

This year’s contest is sponsored by ERA Climate Technologies.

All submitted plays should include super story lines and original superheroes. Plays may have a maximum of six characters, including narrators. At least one winning play will be awarded in each of five different age categories, kindergarten through adult, if all criteria are met.

"Heroes Assemble" will be performed during the summer of 2014 and will feature a cast of youths ages 10-18. It is an opportunity to see original works written especially for children come to life through theatre.
