Young Playwrights Group


Students in grades 7 through 12 are encouraged to participate for the opportunity to earn the title of Youtheatre’s Young Playwright of 2018! The Young Playwrights Group’s eight season begins with a group reading/review of the students’ draft scripts.  New students are required to attend the Basics of Scriptwriting Workshop to learn more about the process before submitting a script.


Following this initial session, students will work with Youtheatre instructors throughout the months of February and March to refine their scripts.  Following adjudication of all scripts, one script will be chosen to be produced for a public world premiere.

Fee: $40 payment/$35 for each additional family.
