This next level class provides an opportunity for students who are ready for an in-depth immersion into playwriting. Through improvisation, writing and collaborative discussion, participants will create, rehearse, and perform their own play by the end of the session. They will perform this play in a theatre with lights and sound. The Teaching Artist will work to meet each student’s level of ability in reading, writing, creating, and performing.
If a child is shy and does not want as large a part on stage as some others, they can help backstage or create sound effects and music. Entrance into this class requires a readiness and maturity on the part of the student for this kind of focus, discipline, and collective group effort. Part of the creative process is to be able to listen to others ideas and to sit quietly at times to write or discuss. Attendance is extremely important for the class.
