Our mission is to inspire young people to create community and build confidence - encouraging them through educational experiences in the performing arts. 


Young Playwright Competition

Playwrights 18 and under will be asked to submit an original one act that runs 30 minutes and is not a musical. Pieces must be appropriate for actors ages 6-18 and cater to a cast of 15-25. If your piece is selected, it will be work shopped with theater Bug staff, local playwrights and actors and then rehearsed and performed at the end of the summer. Playwrights will be asked to be a part of the one-week rehearsal process.

Submission deadline is: Monday, June 1st. For submission guidelines, and forms please visit click HERE

The Bug has officially moved to a new location! We are so grateful to all our volunteers to who helped make this happen. Our new location is in the back building of New Life Baptist Church, located at 4809 Gallatin Pike, just down the road from our old location.
