Set as a 5 day workshop program, #WritesOfPassage takes young inspiring playwrights into the world of generating, structuring, and workshopping short plays of their very own. Our teaching artists work closely with the students as they guide them through a series of exercises. On the final day of the program the Citadel Theatre, our partnering company, supplies actors to create a professional workshop rehearsal opportunity for the students. Our pedagogical approach is aimed at discovery - allowing students to discover their own voice as playwrights and to take ownership of the power of their own unique words.
This program is perfect for junior and senior high schools as well as community organizations and can be adapted to in-person and online workshop formats.
