Grades 7-12
Thursdays 4:30-6:00pm
A total theatre experience for students who are interested in playwriting and performing.  The class will use socially relevant themes such as drugs, suicide, guns, bullying, social media abuse and more to write their very own five to ten-minute play.  Playwriting skills will be taught and improvisation will be used to create characters, conflict and resolution.  Plays will be completed at the end of twelve weeks and rehearsed and performed during the remaining eight weeks.  Also included in the class are resources for 'New Plays Competitions' for students wishing to submit their plays to national and international playwriting competitions and festivals.
