Playwrights event today at Kroc Center

Print Article

From 6 to 8 p.m. today at the Salvation Army Kroc Center in Coeur d’Alene, film, television and stage actors will read 10 short plays written by youth from the Coeur d’Alene Reservation.

The free event is a culmination of playwriting workshops that were presented to students in August by the Mentor Artists Playwrights Project (MAPP).

MAPP, founded in 2003 by Tom Kellogg, a Post Falls High School graduate, works within marginalized communities to connect kids with artist mentors to foster youth empowerment and education of creative processes, and to open dialogue on what is important to young people.

Kellogg will be working with eight mentor actors for the event. They are Elizabeth Frances, who plays Prairie Flower alongside Pierce Brosnan in AMC’s “The Son;” Valente Rodriguez, who played Ernie on “The George Lopez Show;” Miles Villanueva, who played Lyle Menendez in “Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders;” Zilah Mendoza, who has played in roles on shows like “King of Queens,” “Grey’s Anatomy” and “ER;” and Sarah Hennessey, a published poet and actress in “Heart of the Monster.”

Members of the public are invited to attend and hear the plays, meet the actors and support the community.
