Playwriting (ages 17+)
The CHANGE Program (Communities Harnessing the Arts to Nurture and Grow Equity) engages aspiring adult actors of color in theatre education, provides performance opportunities, and a platform to convene dialogue on social issues that challenge our community through creative, artistic expression. This 8 week course is designed to introduce the fundamentals of playwriting to aspiring minority writers: equipping them with the tools to create rich characters, explore their own histories and develop stories that are relevant, inspirational and reflective of their own unique voices.
Students will incorporate their newfound playwriting tools to write a 10 minute play and work with actors to see their creations come to life in a staged reading. Family and friends are invited to attend the special reading of the student’s plays on Oct. 12 at 6:00PM.
Supply list: Laptop or notebook, pen, pencil
