YOUNG PLAYWRIGHTS PROGRAM
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 play writing. 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.
From ACT’s website: “This program has really helped me to find out more about myself. The more I write, I discover connections between each piece and that’s when I realize, wow, this is what I’m interested in, this is who I am.” -Si Jia Yu, Roosevelt High School
Join us at Youngstown Cultural Arts Center on May 1st at 7:00 PM for a celebration of these young writers’ talents.
Tickets are not needed for this presentation.
