mudpie 2018 authors


Mudpie is a show written by children and performed by their peers. Every year, Mudlark Theater Company receives submissions of original creative writing pieces (short stories, fairy tales, poems, ramblings, rants, etc.) that have been written by local kids in the community. Mudlark Theater Company adapts these pieces for the stage and incorporates the show into its mainstage season.

What is mudpie?



Mudpie actors are cast from Mudlark Theater Company's general auditions and are generally comprised of children between the ages of 9-14. These talented young people spend weeks working with the creative writing pieces trying to find the best ways to bring them to life on stage.

The location is of Mudpie 2018 will be at the Noyes Street Theatre at the Noyes Cultural Center  (927 Noyes St. Evanston)
