The 10-Minute Play

Let’s take our writing beyond the page! In this workshop, we’ll take on the fundamentals of playwriting, focusing on dialogue and character. We’ll read (and act!) works from playwriting greats, to get a sense of structure and how what we see on stage plays out on the page. Then we’ll get started writing our own ten-minute plays, meant to be read aloud by the class and some guest professional actors. We’ll also take a trip to Drama Book Shop for play reading, inspiration, and immersion into the world of theater.

Parents, please be sure to pack lunch and a water bottle for your child each day!

*Please note, masks will not be required while in the classroom but are mandatory in all common areas of the building. Guardians will be required to fill out additional paperwork related to COVID-19 protocols before their student can attend class. Thank you!
