FIELD OF PRIZE-PLAY BROADENED
Dramatist's May Now Win Monetary Honors by Writing for Children.
A prize of $100 is offered by the Women's Educational and Industrial Union for a play to be acted next season by the Children's Players, an association of non-professional actors. This association, which has been formed to interest children in better forms of amusement than cheap shows, will present the accepted play at one of the Boston theatres. It will be under the direction of S. J. Hume 1G., who has been very successful in staging performances of the "47 Workshop."
Entries for the competition must fall under one of the following heads: (1) A play of realism; (2) a play of fantasy; (3) a fairy play; (4) a musical play, or (5) an animal play. Manuscripts must be sent to the Children's Players, 264 Boylston Street, Boston, before August 31. None will be accepted before July 1. The judges will be Miss B. D. Flebbe, Professor G. P. Baker, and W. P. Eaton '00.
