Four students were named winners in Penn State York’s second annual play writing competition sponsored by the campus’ Pullo Family Performing Arts Center (The Pullo Center). Winners are Brandon Cwalina, for “Dinner at Six;” Chad Eichelberger, for “All in a Day's Work;” Amber Royster, for “Set Free;” and Lizzet Yanez, for “A Promotion.” Each student received $125. Plays of 10-30 minutes were accepted.
Two of the plays, “All in a Day’s Work” by Elchelberger and “A Promotion” by Yanez, are being performed on March 3, 4, and 5 at noon in room 114 (lower level) of The Pullo Center. The shows are free and open to the public.
