2020 Camp Playwriting

9th*/10th through 12th Grades



Theatre is the most collaborative of all the arts. So it’s only right that we give some much needed space for the vision of the ultimate creative artist: The Playwright. In these three weeks, we’ll work on forming an artistic collective of collaborators. We’ll explore a variety of scripts, each of them differing in genre, style, form, and tone. Students will receive time in class each day to explore writing in these various forms, developing their skills with plot, setting, dialogue, and silent action. Each student will learn to share their pieces with fellow classmates in live workshop sessions, receiving constructive criticism that will improve their work. This class will culminate with each student writing a 10-15 minute short play in their chosen style. This class will give students the comfort and confidence to share their written work and begin the work of becoming true collaborators.
