Steph DeFerie

Steph DeFerieSteph DeFerie grew up on Cape Cod and lives there still. The many, many terrific hours she spent performing in, studying and attending shows at the Harwich Junior Theatre comprise the majority of her theatrical training. Although she also writes for adults, for the last eight years she has worked with the Chatham Middle School Drama Club because she loves introducing kids to the fun of performing. Her favorite part of writing for young audiences is incorporating audience participation into her work. She has published 16 scripts which have received countless productions in this country and abroad and won several awards. Her most popular works include Once Upon A Wolf, Mother Goose Is Eaten By Werewolves, I Hate Shakespeare! and Nick Tickle, Fairy Tale Detective. Out of almost 100 entries, her 10-minute play Nick Tickle In Witch Crook Took The Book? was voted Audience Favorite in the 2009 Summer Shorts 4 Festival in Williston, North Dakota. Her latest piece, an adaptation of A Tale Of Two Cities for middle school performers was staged in May and is now available from Brooklyn. She is extremely proud and excited that her script Puss 'N Boots - A Tale Of A Tail won the East Valley Children's TheatreAspiring Playwrights 2010 Contest and was also awarded Second Place in the 2009 NETC Aurand Harris Memorial Playwriting Competition. It premiered at the Harwich Junior Theatre in August and is available from Playscripts. Her happy ending version of The Pied Piper Of Hamelin Town for elementary school audiences and performers is now available from YouthPLAYS.
