One More Youth Play: "The Coffee House" This Weekend

Laura Smith & Gracie Blackburn

Laura Smith was the leading force behind the resurrection of the Youth Play Festival through Big Dawg Productions.  The festival this year began in October with the final 2 youth plays performed in January.  Gracie Blackburn wrote "Miss Mayberry," which was onstage January 15-17.  The final play is by Cecilia King, "The Coffee House," at 7:00 Thursday, Friday, and  Saturday + 2:00 Sunday, January 21-24 at the Cape Fear Playhouse.   These shows are followed by adult one-acts by local playwright John Grudzien (the Youth shows are free; tickets required for Grudzien's shows).
