Taking center stage from August 29th - October 5th, the New York New Works Theatre Festival Mentors Talented Writers and Exposes them to a panel of Broadway Producers, Emmy and Tony Award Winners

Created as a artistic give-back project, the third annual New York New Work Theatre Festival (NYNW) at the Times Square Arts Centre is the only cost-effective festival of its kind that helps Broadway and television's next generation of writers by exposing them to audiences and providing the mentoring of a panel of Broadway Producers, Emmy and Tony Award Winners who each donate their time for this endeavor.

This year's festival will present 50 shows submitted from writers around the world. Each evening features a lineup of several diverse productions presented by top aspiring writers in their quest for the Broadway spotlight. Encompassing all genres of theatre, all of the performances are mentored and judged by a panel of Broadway Producers and Emmy Award winners (listed below).

Several performances feature current and past Broadway hits including:

· Broadway revival of the six-time Tony nominated, "Starmites" by Barry Keating

· Television veteran Greg Bryk makes directorial debut in Dempsey Bryk's "Oh Loves a Girl"

· "All My Children" star, Alfredo Diaz along with NYC Opera belle, Sarah Doutdna, captivate in MaraLee Gilbert's "Protect the Children"

· Triple "Show Time At The Apollo" Winner Leah Jenea Gaines stars in "Angie Jackson" by Vincent Kee last year's semifinalist, which heads for its London debut after the Festival

· Musical sensations, The Indiggo Twins showcase their talents in "Wicked Clone" based on their bestselling novel

"We wanted to make a difference," said Gene Fisch, Jr., founder and Festival Director.

"Our intent was to create a legitimate theatre festival that incorporated the Broadway community into an environment that truly supported talented writers at little cost for the participants. Each panelist donates their time to review these works, and it is the guidance and involvement from the Broadway community which makes us very proud."

In addition, throughout the Festival, casting agents, investors, and producers are in attendance. In the past two years, many of the Festival winners and participants were able to garner investment or representation. The winner is selected by a panel as well as audience feedback on October 5, 2016.

The festival is presented in association with Bear in Mind Creative www.bearinmindcreative.com.

The New York New Works Theatre Festival will run August 29-31; September 6-8, 12-14, 19-22, 26 with the finals gala on October 5, 2016. Tickets are available online at http://www.nynwtheatrefestival.com/book-tickets.
