Young Playwrights Program staged reading:
Celebrating the next generation of artists
TNP presents a staged reading of original work from the YPP. Fostering the next generation of artists and performers is a central component to the Twelfth Night Productions’ mission, so when the opportunity to participate in ACT Theatre’s Young Playwrights Program came up, it was a natural fit. “I think this is a wonderful program, and I am thrilled to work with these talented young writers,” noted Mary Springer, Artistic Director of Twelfth Night Productions.
ACT’s Young Playwrights Program, or YPP begins in the fall of the school year, when professional playwright/teaching artists from ACT go into the classroom and teach the rudiments of playwriting. Concepts taught include dramatic structure, character creation, dialogue, and action. The student playwrights complete a 10- to 40-minute original play by the end of the session and each spring, TNP selects two or three plays from this program to perform in a live reading.
