The Digital Playwriting Program at Young Playwrights’ Theater

 

On September 28, Young Playwrights’ Theater (YPT) launches its Digital Playwriting Program, after-school virtual playwriting classes for young people. The Digital Playwriting Program is open to students in grades 3 – 12, who are interested in learning how to express themselves through playwriting and storytelling. YPT playwrights learn to create bold characters, imaginative settings, and thrilling action in their very own play with live instruction from a YPT Teaching Artist through video conference.

YPT is dedicated to providing accessible programming to all young people. Students and families have the choice of registering for any Digital Playwriting Program at the cost of $20, $15, $5, or $0 to ensure all students can attend with no financial barrier.

Classes take place on Mondays and Wednesdays, from September 28 to November 4, 2020, at the following times:
3rd to 5th Grade: 3:30pm – 4:15pm EST
6th to 8th Grade: 3:00pm – 3:45pm EST
9th to 12th Grade: 2:30pm – 3:30pm EST

And if you’re an adult looking to explore your own storytelling, YPT has classes for you, too! Step into The Playwrights’ Lab, YPT’s virtual courses for ages 18 and up, where adults can explore playwriting and provide constructive feedback to a group of supportive fellow writers. You’re never too old to be a young playwright!

Enroll in YPT’s playwriting programs today and learn more about all of YPT’s virtual programs as well as their digital curriculum and resources for educators at YPT’s Online Programs Page. For additional questions, contact Young Playwrights’ Theater at [email protected]
