Have an idea you’ve been eager to get out of your head and onto the page? Interested in acting, design, stage management, or directing? This session students will have a chance to connect with the pros through Master Classes, try something new, and help plan this year’s Youth Works Festival!

Through our Collective Playwriting program, high school students work together over several weeks to create original plays, learning all of the required skills from developing an idea, to character and world-building, to scene and monologue writing, to directing and casting.

All classes participating in the Collective Playwriting program will have the opportunity to be part of the Youth Works Festival in summer 2022.

There are no current sessions running. Please check back for added classes!
