DAN KEHDE is an award-winning playwright and local director of the Contemporary Youth Arts Company. Dan continues to create new and challenging works for the stage. With his focus on sharing the creative process with young artists, Dan finds some of his greatest rewards in finding fresh, new artists to bring his works to life. Since his first work premiered in Washington, DC in 1974, Dan has worked as a playwright, librettist, song-writer, novelist, acting coach and director, including a stint in New York with producer Robert Whitmore, in Orlando with Luthier Michael Tobias and, most recently, as a collaborator with local composer Mark Scarpelli. For the past 14 years, Dan has been managing director of the Contemporary Youth Arts Company in Charleston where he premieres many of his works. With nine plays published and performed nationally and internationally and over a dozen awards as a writer under his belt, Dan constantly marvels at the untapped potential in the living stage.

'You never stop writing,' says Dan Kehde
In the Capitol Center Theater on Summers Street, Dan Kehde, leader of the Contemporary Youth Arts Company, prepares for the group's next production, a musical adaptation of "Romeo and Juliet. CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- Dan Kehde started writing stories the minute he could hold a crayon. He believes he was born to write. Why else would all those plots and plays just pour out of him? Why else would he stick with this labor of love and barely eke out a livelihood? A playwright, director and librettist, he earns a bare-bones living as head of the Contemporary Youth Arts Company, a for-profit theater troupe he spearheaded to provide an independent performing outlet for area teenagers. Some of their social action dramas have tackled such sensitive subjects as AIDS, suicide, domestic violence and date rape.

Thursday night the Contemporary Youth Arts Company staged a brand new musical by Mark and David Scarpelli and Dan Kehde, School Girl Zombies from Hell High.
A plea from director, Dan Kehde, at the beginning of the show for the audience to disable all electronic devices due to microphone interference apparently went unheeded, at least if the sheer volume of sound problems throughout the performance were any indication. The show was plagued with lost dialogue, uneven sound levels between actors conversations, and the occasional deafening level of musical accompaniment.
