Playwriting for Youth

  • Class Type: High School, Personal Enrichment, Youth
  • Location: Hastings
  • Start Date: March 13, 2021
  • Time: 1 - 4 p.m.

Students will learn the basic art of writing a play from an instructor with a master’s degree in the subject, who has had work produced in New York City. They will learn the difference between a 10-minute play, a one-act and a full-length play. They will develop an understanding of plot, character, action, conflict and the dramatic arc. They will write a short play on a theme of their choice and take their play through the first stages of development, including a preliminary reading by their peers so they can hear how their play sounds. One or more of the plays may be selected by the class for a production, if there are enough students and time to permit production.

Students through late teens are welcome but should be able to write at least at a fourth-grade level. Adults are welcome too. The class will meet March 13, 20 and 27.
