Playhouse Writing Contest Winners Announced Image
Westport students Jenna Pan (second from left) and Tory Dodge (third from right) were among winners in the Westport Country Playhouse’s writing contest in conjunction with the staging of “On the Verge.” High and middle school students were asked to choose a word—or make up a word of their own—define and explain its origin and use the word in a story about exploration that was 400 words or less. The winners and their families were invited to a performance of “On the Verge” and a pizza party. Their essays were displayed in the Playhouse lobby for the run of the production. Also photographed are other winners in the contest and playhouse staff. They are Natania Wolansky of Greenwich, Pan, Playhouse Artistic Firector Tazewell Thompson, Michelle Martino of Trumbull, Dodge, Crisara Smith of Fairfield, Playhouse Education Director Hyla Crane and Playhouse Associate Artistic Director Anne Keefe. Missing from photo are LuLu O’Donnell of New Canaan, Rachel Downs of Trumbull and Alex Holcombe of Wilton. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Contributed photo
