Essay Competition in conjunction with 

The ‘Lit’ Theatre Project

Presented by Palm Beach Dramaworks. Underwritten by Kids’ Dreams


Kids' Dreams proudly underwrites a special production of the play LOBBY HERO by Kenneth Lonergan for students from various Title 1 Palm Beach County high schools.

Students will read the play as part of their high school curriculum, thereby satisfying specific various Florida credit requirements. The play focuses on the issues of responsible decision-making; ethics; corruption and bias based upon social and economic status. After reading the play, students will each write an essay on the themes as related to their lives.

Essays will be submitted to an Essay Competition. Palm Beach Dramaworks staff in conjunction with independent judges will read the essays and score them.  Participating students will be invited to attend a special matinee performance of the play on October 17, 2023, at no cost to the school or students.

Five winners of the Essay Competition  will be announced at the special matinee performance for the students. Each classroom with a winning student will  also be presented with an award for classroom supplies.
