For the first time ever, Castillo presents a series of new plays by young, socially-engaged playwrights and directors new to the Castillo stage. The five festival scripts were developed in ongoing workshops led by Dan Friedman, Artistic Director of Youth Onstage!, and Fred Newman, Castillo's former artistic director.. The festival productions, directed by Brian Mullin, are being created by members of the Youth Onstage! acting ensemble and the faculty of the YO! Community Performance School.
