In 2017, Dallas Independent School District, Junior Players, and Kitchen Dog Theater merged their resources to form a dynamic partnership called D-PAC (Dallas – Playwriting Arts Collective), which has allowed them to provide expanded services and additional performance opportunities for aspiring student playwrights and actors. D-PAC continues to strengthen their commitment to Dallas area students and will allow them to serve an additional 1,000 DISD students through ongoing playwriting masterclasses throughout the school year.

One vital component of this collaboration is PUP (Playwrights Under Progress) Fest which features six stages readings of jury-selected scripts by student playwrights from all over North Texas. Theater professionals lead acting classes, mentor student playwrights and direct student actors during the week-long rehearsal process leading up to the performances.
