Introduction to Acting and Meisner Technique with Stephanie Jones
Playwriting for Youth
Designed specifically for high school students aged 14-18, this program will offer twice-monthly after school workshops that will lead young playwrights through the process of writing their own 20 minute play. Students will receive regular group workshops, as well as individual feedback with facilitators Monica Dufault and Lindsay Price. The culminating activity will be a reading of excerpts from the students’ plays performed by professional actors at the Sullivan Mahoney Courthouse Theatre in June 2015, as part of the ECT Playwright Weekend.
This program will be offered in January/June 2015.
