YouthPLAYS is a publisher of award-winning professional dramatists and talented new discoveries. We license one-act and full-length plays and musicals, including works both for teen and pre-teen performers, as well as adult actors performing for young audiences. All of our plays are available digitally, and most of them are available as physical copies as well.
Important Note: We recently launched a new website and despite extensive testing, glitches can still happen. Should you encounter a problem, please let us know, Apologies for any inconvenience.
